Wow, it's been 7 months since I last posted here. :)
It's been a busy seven months as the Developer Division has been busy putting together Visual Studio 2008.
We just released the Beta 2 bits today and you can download them from http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa700831.aspx
If you plan on trying it, also try the MS Secure Content Download (MSCD). It's a new peer to peer download tool which my team's been helping the MS Research guys over in Cambridge to test and it's a potential new way of delivering software over the wire. You can download it from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=9A927CF6-16E4-4E21-9608-77F06D2156BB&displaylang=en For more info about MSCD, check out: http://research.microsoft.com/news/featurestories/publish/MSCD.docx.aspx?0hp=n1
Hope you enjoy VS Beta 2. A lot of people put in a lot of work for this release and hopefully it meets your expectations.
