Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Server

Microsoft has launched the full-release general availability versions of Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4, with a host of new features for developers. To fully-inaugurate their flaghsip developer products, Microsoft will be holding more than 150 developer events across the globe. Users will have access to many popular extensions for both Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4, made by over 50 partners and available at the time of the release.

Visual Studio 2010 has the all new Visual Studio editor, which will use Windows Presentation Foundation, support ribbon interface, multiple monitors, Windows 7 multitouch, SharePoint functionality, Windows Azure tools, and IntelliTrace, a new product that will help eradicate nonreproducible bugs. It will also come bundled with Expression Studio, Business & Enterprise Servers, and Microsoft Office in the Ultimate and Premium SKUs

The .NET Framework will also feature built-in support for industry standards, for high-performance middle-tier applications (including parallel programming, workflow, and service-oriented applications), and ASP.NET Model-View-Controller, and will also feature Dynamic Language Runtime. Developers can also enjoy a side-by-side installation with .NET Framework 3.5, and get the advantage of a runtime that has been decreased in size by 80%, making it entirely faster.

Microsoft will also launch the Release to Web version of Silverlight 4 sometime today, which will include more than 60 customizable pre-written controls, extended out-of-browser capabilities, and enterprise application enhancements.
