Visual Studio 2010 SP1 released

Finally!

Very unceremoniously Microsoft has announced that the Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 will be available today (8th March ) for download for MSDN Subscribers, and will be generally available for download on March 10th, 2011.

This brings with it some very exiting bits (in addition to fixing some very annoying bugs). Some of my personnel favourites include:

  1. IIS Express Support (still need to install it separately though)
  2. Silverlight 4 tools are included
  3. Performance wizard for Silverlight (to profile Silverlight apps)
  4. Unit Testing under .Net 3.5 (previously they all ran under .Net 4)
  5. Initial HTML 5 support

On TFS SP1 most of the changes were focussed to allow the Team Foundation Server 2010 and Project Server Integration Feature Pack, in addition to a fairly large number of bug fixes outlined here by Brian Harry.

Oh and while we’re at it, don’t forget about the Team Foundation 2010 Power Tools March 2011 release Smile
