The VS 2010 CTP is out!!! It's very timing - the CTP was released for public download just one day before PDC 2008. Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4.0 mark the next generation of developer tools. If you want to know the key innovations in this new release, please visit the official overview from Microsoft.

This CTP is available only as a Virtual PC image, which can be downloaded here. Please note this VPC image requires Virtual PC 2007 SP1. If you haven't upgraded your VPC to SP1 yet, you can download it here. The image contains Windows 2008 Standard Edition and VS 2010 Team Foundation Suite CTP. 

I downloaded and installed the CTP on my development machine as soon as I saw the news this morning. Here are a few screen shots from the CTP.

Start page - Welcome


Start page - Projects


Start page - Visual Studio


Enhanced recent projects menu


Two Project templates have been added to the New Project dialog - WiX and Modeling


Continuous support for multiple .NET frameworks. .NET 4.0 has been added.


New database project templates support SQL 2000, 2005 and 2008


SQL-CLR project templates have been moved under the new Microsoft SQL Server template group


Looks like there're a lot exciting things in VS 2010. I will definitely play with the CTP a little bit more and write more interesting posts here.
