Just wondering if there's been any information or hints yet about potential release dates for either a CTP or BETA release of Visual studio 2010 and .net framework 4.0?
Now that Windows 7 Beta 1 is out, I'm chomping at the bit to do some multitouch development experiments on my HP Touchsmart computer (have already installed win 7 and the multitouch driver for it).
As I'm a managed coding type of guy, that means WPF and the System.Windows.Input.Touchpoint/TouchPointCollection namespaces in .net 4.0.
I know there's a VPC image of early CTP available here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=922B4655-93D0-4476-BDA4-94CF5F8D4814&displaylang=en which is the same VPC image we got at PDC but it doesn't come on a Win 7 OS so it's not much use to me.
Not really bothered about specific dates, just want to know if we are weeks or months away from an installable CTP/BETA.
We're seeing quite a few new videos on Channel 9 for vs.net 2010, so I'm guessing there may be something coming soon, but I've not seen any information confirming/denying this.
nothing definitive. but rumors are around Mix timeframe. Rumors are early views of silverlight 3 and blend 3 also.
Dont wait on VS 2010 for multitouch.. start NOW!!
I suspect we might not see a proper VS2010 beta until PDC, which is in November.
That's when you can expect a release, not a beta. All bets are on RTM in that time frame, with official release in at the Jan/Feb time frame.warren said:I suspect we might not see a proper VS2010 beta until PDC, which is in November.
It was exactly 2 years between VS2005 and VS 2008, so the same may happen with VS 2010 for sure!wkempf said:warren said:*snip*
