Mar 30

Previously scheduled to be released by end of March, Microsoft has rescheduled the web release of Visual Studio 2010 to April 12th. The release date was revised as the company needed more time for a thorough testing due to the virtual memory and performance issues (as well as some other required minor tweaks). The announcement came from the Microsoft Marketing Communications Manager for Developer and User Experience Runtimes and Tools, Rob Caron. Both .NET Framework 4 and Visual Studio 2010 will now be released together on April 12, 2010 at the DevConnections conference.

Visual Studio is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) with a host of designer tools like WPF Designer, Windows Forms Designer, Web Designer/ Development, Data Designer, Class Designer and Mapping Designer, on top of basic features like Properties Editor, Solution Explorer, Open Tabs Browser, Object Browser, Team Explorer, Server Explorer, and Data Explorer. Visual Basic can support Microsoft Visual C#, Microsoft Visual C++, Microsoft Visual Web Developer, and so on. It can be used for developing graphical UI applications that is supported by Microsoft Silverlight, Microsoft Windows, Windows CE, Windows Mobile, .NET Compact Framework, and .NET Framework.

Its latest version, Visual Studio 2010 simplifies the app for ease of use and eliminating clutter. Like the latest .NET Framework, it is designed to support Windows 7 operating systems as well as Oracle and IBM DB2 databases. As those who have tried the Visual Studio 2010 release candidates would testify on top of a leaner and meaner design (as well as an improved UI), this latest version has a number of tools for debugging lateral applications. Because it strives to promote a more simplified kind of programming, Visual Studio 2010 allows for convenient interoperability with Visual F#, a more pragmatic, straight-forward and object-oriented programming that offers a precise scalable .NET language.

Visual Studio 2010 also comes with SharePoint Designer which includes features like statement completion, IntelliSense, templates for projects, and other debugging tools.
