It's been a while since we posted on the upcoming XNA Game Studio 2.0 release. The good news is that there will be a XNA Game Studio 2.0 beta available for you to download very soon!

This beta is considered "feature complete." This means that while we still have some issues to address, all of the features that will be in the release are included as part of the beta. However like all our previous betas, the beta is for the Windows-based computer functionality only and you will not be able to deploy games to the Xbox 360 system.

Unfortunately, there were a few things that didn't make it into this release. The most prominent being that you cannot host XNA applications in Windows Forms. All the other major features that we talked about earlier this year will be available!

Over the next few weeks, we'll be blogging about some of the new features in XNA Game Studio 2.0 and what's been changed. This should give you a good idea of what to expect in the release.

Keep an eye on our blog or add us to your RSS reader of choice as we'll post as soon as the beta is released!

    Can't wait for the 2.0 beta.

    Hopefully we'll be able to work with Xbox Live from the Beta?   Somewhat doubtful though if that's only Windows Beta.
