Experiences and Experiments in Programming

 Tuesday, November 06, 2007

Well, it is official.  Yesterday at TechEd in Barcelona the announcement was made public that Microsoft will be releasing Visual Studio 2008 and the 3.5 version of the .NET Framework by the end of November.  This is welcome news for many of us that have been waiting on the next release to fix a few issues, which were of the annoying variety.

So for everyone that has been using Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5 from the Beta 2 drop and other tools like Expression Blend, the world is soon to be a better place.

For those of you who have not ventured into VS 2008 yet, let me tell you....go toward the light!  I am typically a very cautious person when it comes to jumping into the newest thing.  But with 2008 (previously Orcas), I went against my nature and jumped in.  I have not looked back yet.  Being a more visual developer, the new tools in the IDE alone are worth their weight in gold!  I won't go into detail here because there are so many others that have done a great job discussing the new features of VS2008 and .NET 3.5.  What I will do is tell you, from a typically cautious person, you will love VS 2008.  Do yourself a favor and try it out!
