The final build of Visual Studio 2012 is now complete! The engineering team is finished and is now preparing the build for our numerous distribution channels.

I’d also like to congratulate the Windows 8 team for completing their important release to manufacturing today. You can read more from the Windows team on the  Building Windows 8 blog.

I’m looking forward to our next milestone when we make Visual Studio 2012 available for everyone to download from MSDN and elsewhere on August 15th. Watch my blog for the official release information.

Finally, I’d like to invite you to join Soma and me on September 12th as we officially launch Visual Studio 2012 via a live online event. For more information, please visit http://www.visualstudiolaunch.com/. I hope you will tune in to learn more about all the new capabilities in VS 2012.

Exciting times ahead!
