Microsoft Updates HTML5 Support for Visual Studio
Microsoft today released its Web Standards Update for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 SP1. The update works on both commercial versions of Visual Studio, as well as the free Visual Web Developer Express 2010 SP1. The download, hosted on the Visual Studio Gallery Web site, can be found here.
Scott Hanselman, Principal Program Manager Lead at Microsoft, described the update in detail in a blog post.
"We don't know what all will come in the next version of Visual Studio, or the next version of HTML5, but for those of you who are interested, we hope this 'living update' of Web Standards support for Visual Studio will help you out!" he wrote.
Hanselman also took a moment to rib developers concerned about the fate of Silverlight, after a pair of Windows 8 demos highlighting the HTML5 capabilities of the new OS failed to make mention of Silverlight.
