Visual Studio 2008 released soon?

According to the MSDN Subscriptions WebLog we can expect to see Visual Studio 2008 to be downloadable early next week.

“Visual Studio 2008 is anticipated out early next week, with availability for Subscribers. Check out the "Top Subscriber Downloads" area on http://msdn2.microsoft.com/subscriptions for VS 2008 downloads.

You will also be able to access these downloads by clicking on the Subscriber Downloads and Product Keys links that take you to all of your downloads. ”

That would be great and just in time for a session I'm doing Friday on 'what's new in Visual Studio 2008'. More details on that here: http://www.newhorizonslearning.nl/New-Horizon-s-Developers-day.554.0.html (it's Dutch).

update: RTM has been reached and VSTS 2008 can be downloaded (source).

Attending TechEd Developers 2007 in Barcelona

by Sander Gerz November 06, 2007 09:51

If you're attending the TechEd Developers conference in Barcelona this year, you are like me. I arrived yesterday and missed the keynote speech. Biggest news for most, but not everyone, is that Visual Studio 2008 will be available end of this month. Now, some may wonder about the initial announcement that Microsoft made about the launch of the new version on February 27th 2008. It's simply a matter of marketing. Creating a buzz around three major products - Visual Studio 2008, SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008, on a single date is more effective than releasing the bits bit by bit. Even though the other products may not even be available end of February.

At least one product will be, and from a developer's perspective, it's the most important product :-)

An overview of the new features can be found here.

Anyway, if you're at TechEd, stop by in the ask-the-experts area at the Windows Vista booth for a chat.
