Visual Studio 'Orcas' Gets a Name

In a surprise to absolutely no one, the official name of the next edition of Microsoft's flagship integrated development environment (IDE) will be Visual Studio 2008, Microsoft announced this week at its Tech Ed 2007 show in Orlando, Fla.

A second beta of the product -- previously codenamed "Orcas" -- is expected later this summer. RDN Senior Editor Kathleen Richards recently took a detailed look at which planned features are in and out of Visual Studio 2008.

Microsoft also announced at Tech Ed that Visual Studio 2008 will include the Visual Studio Shell, a stripped-down version of the core IDE that is "intended to let developers integrate their products directly into Visual Studio and then ship them as if they were their own products," says Joe Marini, group product manager for Microsoft's VSIP program.
