Visual Studio 2010 RC is available on the Web today for MSDN subscribers. Go to the RC landing page for details.
We have a very short window, just a few weeks, for incorporating feedback from you back into the product for RTM. Please install the RC today, so we can fix any critical issues you find in the product before RTM. We’ve already fixed a couple of bugs since the RC in the load testing product, generated from internal adopters of the RC. Overall feedback so far has been very positive – people love this release!
Between Beta 2 and RC we’ve made substantial improvements across VS, especially focusing on performance and reliability of VS.
We have been very busy since releasing beta 2. Of course we’ve fixed bugs across the feature set and also rounded out some rough edges, including:
Web Test Recorder
With the RC release, we now have addressed the most common problems as described in Diagnosing and fixing Web Test recorder bar issues. We have also fixed some patterns around correlation and hidden field binding in AJAX requests that we were not handling properly before.
We made really nice changes in the analyzer to address feedback you’ve given us.
Load Test API
Please install the RC and send us your feedback.
