Welcome to 2010 & is updated & ZScreen 3.25!

January 5th, 2010 No comments

5 days into 2010, its already feeling a bit awkward as 99 doesnt feel that long ago.

My good buddy Edwin Vermeer has finally got his WordPress blog setup and he’s also included many of his code as open-source. Of particular interest is the assembly SVGA library he wrote (!!!) 20 years ago and various projects I remember talking with him about over the years.

On a side note, I almost forgot to mention that ZScreen was updated on Christmas eve to 3.25 thanks to Santa. For those who haven’t tried ZScreen its a screen capture tool (open source and written in C#) that is chocko-block full of things that will make your life helluvah lot easier – especially when it comes to taking screenies for blog posts. Check it out, it goes beyond WindowClippings which used to be my screen-shot application.

Let the good times roll… Wishing everyone who stumbles apon this post all the best for 2010.

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 is out!

October 21st, 2009 No comments

Microsoft has just released VisualStudio 2010 Beta 2 to MSDN Subscribers – aka Rosario.


I’m not sure why they’re going with the ULTIMATE moniker for Visual Studio, I still prefer the VS6 style Standard, Professional, Enterprise. Meh.

  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN
    The comprehensive suite of application lifecycle management tools for software teams to ensure quality results from design to deployment.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Premium with MSDN
    A complete toolset for developers to deliver scalable, high quality applications.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional with MSDN
    The essential tool for professional development tasks to assist developers in implementing their ideas easily. (Note: Visual Studio 2010 Professional will also be available without MSDN subscription)

Some of the more exciting things that are coming with Visual Studio 2010 are documented on MSDN or a better one would be Vikas Goyal’s post and also his .NET 4.0 coverage.. Personally the Parallel extensions are the most exciting bits for me. The new Java 7 work is concentrating heavily on concurrency and its good to see both camps pushing the boundaries.
