Launch day is here and I’m pleased to announce the product is final and available now!

I can easily say this is the biggest tools release I’ve been involved with in over a decade working on .NET and Visual Studio.  The work in the product represents in some cases (such as the CLR) four years of innovation coming together.  I want to say a big THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS to the entire team.

In just a little while I will continue our world wide launch events here in London followed by Bob Muglia in Las Vegas.  We’ve already completed the events in Malaysia, China, and India.  In addition to the keynotes, we will have local events around the world and will have streaming media available for you.

Finally, thanks to all of you who downloaded pre-release builds of the product and provided your feedback.  You’re feedback has been invaluable to us.

Enjoy the release, I can’t wait to see what you create…
