On Monday I posted a detailed walk through of Beta 1 here. Beta 1 has been available to MSDN subscribers since Monday and will be available to everyone as of 10 AM PST today (Wednesday May 20). I’m about to catch a plane from JFK to Seattle so I’m posting the links now:) They will be live after 10 AM PST:
This beta does have full setup available so you can provision it yourself. The product is designed to work cleanly with VS2008, however like any pre-release software you should be careful about using the product on your main machine. We are not (yet) opening the product up for general ‘go live’ usage; our goal is to get your feedback on the feature set and direction we are headed.
I really want to hear your feedback! I will definitely follow blog comments, but the best way to give us that feedback is through the Visual Studio 2010 / .NET Framework 4 Beta 1 site. You can get your issues and suggestions routed to the teams directly by going through this route.
Over the next week I’ll be posting a couple of tutorials that you can use to try out new functionality. Stay tuned…
