The VS Data team receives valuable feedback from customers' experiences with the Visual Studio 2005 Beta 1 and Beta 2 releases. The issues and suggestions received help us make the VS Data tools, and the entire VS 2005 product, more robust. Going forward, I plan to provide a monthly summary of the issues and suggestions received via the MSDN Product Feedback Center (see http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/productfeedback/) that have been assigned to the VS Data team.
Summary for the month of April 2005
As evidenced by the above data, over 1/3 of the issues/suggestions reported in April led to product changes/improvements. Hence, I encourage users of the VS 2005 beta releases to continue to report issues, provide suggestions, etc. to contribute to making VS 2005 an awesome product.
