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

Total number of issues / suggestions reported by customers 25
Quantity fixed or could not be reproduced (previously fixed)  9 (36%)
Quantity resolved as by design or won't fix  9 (36%)
Quantity postponed to future release  7 (28%)

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.
