I’m happy to announce that today we shipped the Beta 2 release of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0. MSDN subscribers can download Beta 2 immediately. We will be opening up Beta 2 for everyone to download starting this Wednesday. VS 2010 and .NET Improvements VS 2010 and .NET 4 bring a huge number of improvements and additions. They include big advances for ASP.NET web development, WPF and WinForms client development, SharePoint development, Silverlight development, data development, parallel computing development, and cloud computing development. VS 2010 also delivers a ton of improvements in the core IDE, code editors, programming languages, and enterprise design, architect, and testing tools.
