Visual Studio 2005 Beta Developer Center

Visual Studio 2005 Beta Developer Center
We’re excited to announce the Visual Studio 2005 Beta Developer Center: the central place for you to find all the latest information about the beta versions of Visual Studio 2005, including express editions as well as improvements and new features in Visual Studio 2005, the .NET Framework 2.0, and ASP.NET 2.0.

  • Personalization
    The Visual Studio 2005 Developer Center is also MSDN’s pilot release of personalization features. The personalized developer center will provide you with the most relevant content, based on what you've told us. For example, if you tell us you're interested in C++ and C# but not VB or ASP.NET, we'll show you headlines about C# and C++, but not anything on Visual Basic or ASP.NET. We’ve put this pilot developer center on our lab environment, since it is a prototype, and is far from finished. For this first release, only headlines, featured links and the Product Feedback Center are personalized—but we plan to do more.
  • Express Editions
    The Visual Studio Express products expand the Visual Studio product line to include lightweight, easy to use, easy to learn tools for hobbyists, enthusiasts, and novices who want to build dynamic Windows applications and Web sites.
  • Visual Studio 2005 Beta Documentation Library
    Check out the latest documentation for VS2005, including an overview of improvements in Visual Studio 2005, the .NET Framework 2.0, and ASP.NET 2.0. This documentation also provides you with tutorials, samples, templates, and migration information to get you up and running with this latest version.

MSDN Product Feedback Center
The MSDN Product Feedback Center is a public suggestion and bug database for Microsoft products, starting with Visual Studio 2005 and the .NET Framework 2.0 Beta. Developers can track suggestions and bug reports online, get email notification of fixes, and interact directly with Microsoft product teams during product development. Leveraging the collective experience of the developer community, the site enables developers to stay productive by avoiding known problems, sharing workarounds, and voting on existing feedback, in addition to filing new reports.

We really want to hear from you about what we did well, what needs work, and what you’d like to see in future versions. Send us feedback via our new Product Feedback Center by making a suggestion or logging a bug to MSDN Online.

Thanks again,
The MSDN Team
