Visual Studio 2008 already finished?

    While watching the new screencasts from Daniel Moth (see Screencasts section), I noticed that when he opens Visual Studio 2008, the splash screen doesn't contain the "Beta 2" text anymore.

    Might this be an indication that an RTM version is already available at Microsoft internally? Or is it an RC (which I doubt because Scott Guthries mentioned in his blog that the final release is not very far off).

    Has anyone more information? Any interviews with Scott and/or Soma planned in the near future, Charles Wink?

    They usually remove Beta 2 off the splash right after it ships. That doesn't mean that it is RTMed, it just means The Moth is using an internal build of VS 2008.

    I recieved an e-mail from MS this week, that said that RTM was very close and that they wanted to thank me for my feedback in the beta process... How nice...
