has released. w00t!

For the XML Tools team this is an especially big release since SP1 is the vehicle in which two of our big investments went out for the first time. Congratulations to the feature teams involved in getting these out to customers.

XML Schema Explorer which adds to the already rich set of XML Tools such as XML Editor and XSLT Debugger that we ship in VS.

ADO.Net Entity Designer which is a first class designer to help customers adopt and work with the new ADO.Net Entity Framework shipped in .Net FX 3.5 SP1 for the first time.

Both of these tools are incredibly cool (since they are WPF based) and provide a good sense of the direction all our tool offerings will be taking in future versions of VS. Please provide all your suggestions and comments through this MSDN Forum.

    Using WPF also results in horribly blurred text on UI elements. The way WPF handles text antialiasing is really pretty bad on smallish UI fonts. It works fine on high-res displays (I can hardly spot the difference on my T61p with 15" 1920x1200), but it is really very noticeable on my desktop 20" 1400x1500.

  • Installed VS2008 SP1. Problem encountered with Debugger. Very often lose control when single stepping thru c# code. Sometimes we get a message "Cannot single step. Process not synchronized". Never had this problem prior to SP1 (Also had it in SP1 Beta, but ininstalled the SP1 beta).

  • For the debugger issues, I would suspect that this might be due to SP1 Beta being on the same box and not everything getting upgraded correctly.

    Please try the "Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack Preparation Tool" from here and reinstall SP1 RTM:

    I would recommend filing this as a Connect issue to see if other users are hitting this issue as well.

    Thanks,
