… and this RC1 will go public in 3 days. (if your are logged in MSDN, the link is: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/securedownloads/default.aspx?pv=18%3a370)
I had access to the Release Candidate 1 limited community editions for a month, and I can say that hopefully, overall stability, performance and memory consumption have been greatly enhanced. As many, I was pretty angry with VS2010 beta2 performance and stability and it is good to see that MS engineers were able to address all these.
Also, a huge thanks to the Visual Studio Partners team that was pretty responsive and efficient during the last weeks. Thanks to their help, NDepend v3 beta3, I announced 12 days ago, works 100% with this VS 2010 RC1 version.We hope to have a NDepend v3 Release Candidate during next week.
Also, we prepared a screencast overview tour for this upcoming release integrated in Visual Studio 2010, 2008 and 2005. The fun part was that we used a synthesized English speaker for the speech in the screencast (it is Ryan US in the combo box). The reason is that in our team, we all have more or less strong French accent (I would say more for me, you can get a glimpse in this podcast with Scott Hanselman). (Tip: if you want to make your girlfriend or wife laugh, just type something sweet and make it say with the synthesized speaker [:)] ).
