Visual Studio 2008 Is Here

Microsoft has delivered to manufacturing Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5. Probably the biggest innovation in this release is Language-Integrated Query (LINQ), but there are also a number of additions to both the development environment and the framework.

Visual Studio 2008 is available to MSDN subscribers via download. However, it will likely be several weeks before it becomes generally available. Microsoft will host the global launch of Visual Studio 2008 on Feb. 27, 2008, along with Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008.

Do you plan on immediately adopting any of these technologies? Tell me your plans at pvarhol@redmondmag.com.
