A couple of days ago Redmond-based software giant Microsoft released the Beta 2 of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4. At the time the software was available only to MSDN subscribers. As of today, the 21st of October, Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 and .NET Framework 4 Beta 2 are available for download to anyone interested in getting the software.

With the release of Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 and .NET Framework 4 Beta 2 Microsoft made public the fact that the product lineup has been simplified; there are just three editions of VS 2010: Ultimate, Premium and Professional. The Ultimate version focuses on collaboration, the Premium version focuses on high quality scalable applications and the Professional version focuses on the more basic software development needs.


“Developers face demanding, complex and fast-paced environments today; this next wave of tools and technologies will help simplify the development process from design to deployment and will enable developers to use their existing skills and knowledge to build better software, faster. Now is the time to test drive the new functionality and features in these releases, which address everything from Windows 7 and SharePoint support to collaboration and life-cycle management,” commented Senior Vice President of the Developer Division with Microsoft, S. Somasegar.

In related news, Microsoft also announced the release of SharePoint Server 2010. The software will be released as a Beta this November. Alongside SharePoint Server 2010 Microsoft will roll out a Beta version of Office 2010. The thing I wanted to draw attention to is the fact that new SharePoint Tools will be implemented in Microsoft Visual Studio. According to Microsoft, these tools are meant to give “developers a premier experience with the tools they know and trust.”
