Ask Microsoft About Visual Studio 10

The first beta of Visual Studio 2010 is expected in mid-May, in tandem with Microsoft's annual Tech-Ed North America conference. That's if things go according to plan.

Microsoft won't confirm the dates, but the word on the street is that the annual education confab is the target for the beta release.

Brian Harry, the Microsoft Technical Fellow who runs the Team Foundation Server (TFS) product unit, offered a high-level overview of what's new in Visual Studio Team System (VSTS) 2010 in a blog post last week. Harry indicated that the beta is getting close:

"I'm quite certain I'm not allowed to give out dates right now but I'll just say that the features have been done for a while now and we're just testing and refining the quality. After that comes the release process. All of this takes a while but sitting on the inside it feels like we're just about there."

Harry is starting a blog series on VSTS 2010. In his kick-off to the series, he offered a concise list of new features in VSTS 2010 with links to Microsoft blogs that cover architecture, development and database, Lab Management (virtualization), test, in addition to his own blog, which will focus on TFS. The new TFS will support 64-bit on all tiers, according to Harry.

Anxious to learn more about Visual Studio 2010? Here's your chance to ask Microsoft about the next version of its flagship IDE. Send us your questions about Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0, and we'll work to put them in front of Microsoft product managers and decision makers as part of an ongoing series of interviews to be published at VisualStudioMagazine.com and in print issues of Visual Studio Magazine.

If possible, please provide your name, location (city, state), title and company. If you don't wish to be specifically identified in our coverage, let us know and we can omit your information as requested.

We look forward to getting your questions in front of Microsoft! Express your thoughts on the upcoming IDE below or send an e-mail to Kathleen Richards, executive editor of Visual Studio Magazine, at [email protected].
