Microsoft is highly committed to delivering a quality product in time for the Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 launch. We received a lot of positive customer feedback on the new capabilities of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4. At the same time, we also received feedback around performance issues. Since then, our engineering team has been working to improve performance between Beta 2 and launch so we’re set to deliver a high quality product come April. The RC released today delivers enhanced performance and is an added milestone to garner even more customer feedback before the final build is released.
Go download the RC and let us know your thoughts.
