I’m a bit late to announce it, but only now do I find the time to blog: this morning, we released the DSL SDK for Visual Studio Beta2. It is available from Visual Studio 2010 DSL SDK Beta2, and, as for the Beta1, you’ll need to install the Visual Studio 2010 SDK Beta 2 beforehand. The documentation and sample will be available soon from the DSL SDK hone page on the code Gallery (http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/DslTools),
Here are the new features with respect to DSL Tools for Visual Studio 2008 SP1, but I’ve also highlighted that is new in Beta2 with respect to the DSL SDK for Visual Studio 2010 Beta1:
In Visual Studio 2010, the F5 experience is improved, and deployment of a DSL considerably simplified, exploiting the extension manager in the Visual Studio platform and the new facilities in the Visual Studio SDK top create a VSIX package which is a simple zip archive that unpacks itself into the User’s extensions folder.
Visual Studio 2010 Beta2 also brings 12 new DSL features:
A migration tool is included to help DSL authors migrate their existing DSLs from Visual Studio 2008 and the associated VSSDK. (For more details, see the documentation and a video)
In the next few weeks, we’ll add new Beta2 samples to the DSL SDK home page and I’ll blog about the highlighted features.
