Visual Studio 2005 ! The Count Down Begins !! 60 Days to go !!!



Hope by now everyone is aware of the next major release of Microsoft, the Visual Studio 2005 (They have eliminated the term .NET which was there in prior versions i.e Visual Studio .NET 2003, Visual Studio .NET 2002).

The official release date is November 7, 2005 launch of Visual Studio 2005, one of the most significant releases in the history of the Developer Division.

Visual Studio 2005 leverages on the next version of .NET Framework - 2.0. There has been a lot of Beta Releases, CTPs from which Microsoft got huge amount of feedbacks / suggestions which they have listed to and implemented in the subsequent builds / releases. The final release which is planned to be done as a grand release across different locations will be on November 7, 2005, the big day to watch out !!!

Visual Studio 2005 drastically removes most of the plumbing work developers need to do for developing web / windows ~ applications / services and improves developer productivity to a great extent.

Code Refactoring, Auto Correction of Method Changes, No building of DLL for each and every change, ability to build individual files, Intellisense in Code Behind / Code Inline are a few great points to name out when Visual Studio 2005 comes into mind.

One thing which was worrying for me was the inability to exclude files from project while building, which in current Visual Studio.NET 2003 is a very useful feature. A lot of feedback has gone about this and hope it will be a part of the final release.

Along with Visual Studio 2005 there are exciting range of other products lined up for release..

Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server (TFS)
Visual Studio Team System (VSTS)


SQL Server 2005 (Yukon) which is the buzz among SQL Experts of late (rather for the past 2 years).

More information and resources can be found at
Visual Studio 2005 Beta Home

I am excited about the new releases and the new set of development standards being introduced with Visual Studio 2005 and I hope you would be as well.

Cheers to Visual Studio 2005 !!!
