Visual Studio Refresh

Visual Studio 2008 has been out for less than a year (I'm good enough at math to at least know that one), but it's already getting its first refresh. A new service pack for Visual Studio and .NET Framework 3.5 is done and is now in the hands of those that actually manufacture this stuff.

Even if you're not a developer, there are a few things that may be handy to know. The service pack makes software faster to develop and more data-driven. Now you can tell your developers you want that new data-driven application, and you want it now!
