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.

From Celine Allee:

“After much anticipation, Microsoft has now made Windows 7 Beta available for evaluation and testing to IT professionals! For TechNet subscribers, you can download Windows 7 Beta today here. The beta is your chance to help us with feedback that targets the fundamentals—the ‘quality bar’ that we are setting for Windows 7 on security, reliability, and performance. If you are interested in getting even more involved, the Windows Feedback Program is your chance to directly influence future versions of the Windows operating system. This program is limited to the first 500 IT professionals to sign up, so don’t delay!”

Oooo yeah!
