VS2010 Shows WPF 4 Advances

VSM Executive Editor Kathleen Richards on Wednesday reported in her RDN Express blog that Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 is showing off some welcome improvements in text handling, courtesy of the updated WPF 4 Beta 2 graphics subsystem. New tweaks like TextFormattingMode and TextRenderingMode are giving developers much finer control over text display and position in the Visual Studio code editor interface. These improvements may be seeing first light in the Visual Studio IDE, but they'll be available to everyone once .NET 4 ships in March. Check out the rest of the RDN Express blog post here.
