Visual Studio 2010 RTM, Launch Events and More!

It seems very unlikely that you missed it, but Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.0 has officially launched! I can’t adequately express how excited we are about this release. There is so much good stuff in there, it is hard to know where to start.

I want to congratulate the thousands of people who spent the last two years working on this release. I’ve had the pleasure of working with many of them as we built out all the great new architecture features in Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.

For those of you who’ve been creating models in the architecture tools in RC and Beta2, we just shipped the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Architecture Model Upgrade Tool on the VS Gallery. Check it out.

We also just shipped the RTM version of the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Visualization & Modeling SDK (née the Domain Specific Language Toolkit SDK). Jean-Marc Prieur has just posted an announcement post about it.

The Vegas launch event was a hit, and it is being followed up by a bunch of regional events. I will be speaking on Tuesday April 20th at the Denver event, so if you’re in town, please SIGN UP and come on out.
