Everyone on the VC team is getting really excited about the upcoming PDC in Los Angeles. This will be our first chance to show you some of our upcoming features and a great way for us to get feedback direct from you on what we have implemented so far and what we have planned. PDCs are always one of our most exciting events to speak at, given the forward looking nature of the program (and, to be truthful, we learn as much about what other teams are planning as attendees do sometimes!) Just wanted to add a small reminder that VC will be presenting two sessions at the PDC and invite any of you who will be there to drop by and meet us. The two sessions are:
· Microsoft Visual C++: 10 Is the New 6, presented by Boris Jabes.
· Microsoft Visual Studio: Building Applications with MFC, presented by myself.
Also attending from VC will be Arjun Bijanki and Raman Sharma; all four of us will be delighted to meet you during the event, at one of the above sessions or look for us in the lounge too. Once we have our lounge sessions booked we will post the times here, if you would like to arrange to meet.
> Can we read the manuscript of "Microsoft Visual C++: 10 is the new 6" after PDC?
You can see the recordings of all PDC sessions online, here are the links for our two talks:
> What about C++0x (C++09)? Is there any chance that VC10 support C++09?
Please have a look at this posting for some details on our C++0x support:
>I would like to see a redesign of the .vcproj system to be more 'progammable' like makefiles, and less raw-data-ish.
With the release of Visual Studio 10 we are moving to a MSBuild based build system. MSBuild provides better diagnostics, extensibility.
Because of this move the project file will be more programmable and customers will be able to extend the build system and customize it according to their build requirements.
