As noted by soma and others, we've officially shipped Visual Studio 2005, .NET Framework 2.0 and SQL Server 2005. The bits are online for download by those with MSDN subscriptions (and the servers are somewhat, er, busy ).

The next step is the launch events. As I mentioned here, I'll be at the San Francisco launch. In particular, I'll be hanging out at the Ask The Experts area from 10:30 - 12:30, then at the Hands On Labs from 2:30 - 4:30. Hopefully, there'll be some time to get lunch and talk more with some of you in between.

That same week I'll be speaking at the Bay.NET User Group. You can find more information and register here.

It also looks like I'll be at the Tel Aviv launch on December 12th. Roy, you hear that? We'll finally get to meet in person.
