The official source of product insight from the Visual Studio Engineering Team
Sometimes it can be hard to keep up with all the top content across our many developer blogs. This makes sense, given that we have thousands of blogs! We want to make it easier for you to find and subscribe to the topics you’re interested in.
Today we’re introducing the Developer Tools blog network, which connects the top Microsoft developer blogs. You can see that as a member of network, this blog now contains a set of tabs at the top, which make it easy to discover and navigate to blogs in different topic areas:
If you go to the Developer Tools blog network site itself, you will see an aggregate feed of all these blogs together. You can subscribe to this feed by clicking the “All Developer Tools Blogs” RSS button.
If you just want to keep up with all the latest announcements and releases (another common request), you can navigate to the news tab above for a filtered list.
With today’s update, you’ll notice a few other changes on this blog such as a refreshed user interface. There are some new controls on the right, including videos, twitter, facebook and more. We hope these allow you to connect with us in more ways.
We look forward to hearing what you think about these updates, and continuing the conversations with you all on this blog.

Thanks for your note, and I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble viewing the rest of the comments. As far as we know, this problem was already fixed before your post, so please let us know if you continue to experience it. Otherwise, kindly utilize the pager at the bottom of the page to navigate between the different pages of comments.
Blog posts used to work fine on my iPhone using the Firefox app.
Now they load but then go to a blank page....
(Note this us just for the posts. The list of posts (main blog page) still works fine.)
Eric is his own category, that's awesome.
Is there a user group in the NYC area with a focus on VS 2010 Test Professional?
It looks like you've got rid of the "visited" colour for blog posts. I can't easily see at a glance which posts I've read and which I haven't - all the headings come out the same colour. They used to be blue vs. grey - could you reintroduce this please?
Ratings are back! Time to go add your rating to this post. :)
Thanks again for reporting this and apologies for any inconvenience in the meantime.

I know i'm asking very basic question...but i'm unable to free my labels, texts, buttons etc..and now i dont remember how to make them free so that i can place them any where on my designing screen.
Has anyone else noticed that links to off-site blogs (e.g. ScottGu) don't work correctly in IE9? They open in a new window that has no scroll bars, no toolbars, no menus. Don't know about other browsers as I don't use them.
Replying to Carl D -- Yes, we picked up that new window with no scrollbars problem a couple days ago and have identified some errant JQuery in the new design that, once removed, will elminate this problem. It will be fixed in a few days. Please bear with us during construction!
I like it so much!
