Download Visual Studio 2010 Beta and experiment the latest visual studio release from microsoft stable. Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 delivers a modern, enhanced user experience that makes understanding the current context more natural with Clear UI Organization, reduced clutter and complexity, improved editor, better support for floating documents and windows, enhanced document targeting and focused animations for action feedback.
While Visual C# and Visual Basic languages continue to evolve towards feature parity, strive to simplify programming and deployment with the Microsoft Office APIs, and allow easy interoperability to dynamic languages, Visual F# is a new programming language which combines functional, object-oriented programming to provide a succinct, expressive and scalable language for .NET.
Visual Studio 2010 offers greater support for Test-Driven Development, where tests are written before product code as an iterative approach to software design.
With the Visual Studio partner ecosystem, developers will now be able to work with IBM DB2 and Oracle databases in addition to Microsoft SQL Server databases.
With Windows Azure Tools for Visual Studio, it’s easy for developers to build, debug and deploy services and applications for Microsoft’s new cloud platform.
Features Of Visual Studio 2010
Office Development in Visual Studio 2010 – Ability to deploy multiple Office Solutions in one package, which will appear as a single entry in the “Add/Remove Programs” in Windows XP or “Programs and Features” in Windows Vista.Visual Studio 2010 also allows you to perform additional actions after the Office solution installation is complete such as copy documents or workbooks to the end user computer, create extra registry keys, or modify a configuration file.
Multi-targeting – The multi-targeting feature of Visual Studio lets you specify the version of the .NET Framework, or its profile, that is required for your application.Thus you can continue to develop projects that were created in Visual Studio 2008 without adding new .NET Framework dependencies.
Parallel Computing – The Parallel Extensions to the .NET Framework 4 and the Concurrency Run-time for Visual C++ 2010 enable developers to leverage parallel computing. By using these frameworks, developers can write parallel applications that will scale efficiently as the numbers of cores and processors increase.Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 also provides new debugging and profiling tools to help developers understand and verify the behavior of their parallel applications.
Work-flow Foundation – Work-flow Foundation (WF) provides significant enhancements in this release such as explicit data model and fully declarative experience for authoring activities, a new Flowchart modeling style, deeper integration with Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and high performance run-time engine.
Other Features include:
- Ability to discover existing code assets with the new Architecture Explorer
- Design and share multiple diagram types, including use case, activity and sequence diagrams
- Tooling for better documentation of test scenarios and more thorough collection of test data
- Run tests impacted by a code change with the new Test Impact View
- Gated check-in, branch visualization and build work-flow allow for enhanced version control
- “One Click Deployment” that quickly publishes files and configuration settings from development machines to the final deployed site
- Full support for Silver-light for cutting-edge, rich Internet applications
