    Насчет Оркас:

    Еще интересный факт: тот самый аэропорт, в который мы прилетели находится рядом с Rosario, что является кодовым названием версии VSTS, которая выходила в паре с Оркас...


    The name "Orcas" (pronounced /ˈɔrkəs/, like Orcus, not */ˈɔrkəz/ like the plural of orca) is a shortened form of Horcasitas, or Juan Vicente de Güemes Padilla Horcasitas y Aguayo, 2nd Count of Revillagigedo, the Viceroy of Mexico who sent an exploration expedition under Francisco de Eliza to the Pacific Northwest in 1791. During the voyage, Eliza explored part of the San Juan Islands. He did not apply the name Orcas specifically to Orcas Island, but rather to part of the archipelago. In 1847 Henry Kellett assigned the name Orcas to Orcas Island during his reorganization of the British Admiralty charts. It was this work of Kellett's that eliminated the patriotically American names that Charles Wilkes had given to many features of the San Juans during the Wilkes Expedition of 1838-1842. Wilkes had named Orcas Island "Hull Island", after Commodore Isaac Hull. Other features of Orcas Island named by Wilkes include "Ironsides Inlet" for East Sound, and "Guerrier Bay" for West Sound. One of the names Wilkes gave remains, that of Mount Constitution. Wilkes' names follow a pattern: Isaac Hull was the commander of "Old Ironsides" (the USS Constitution) and won fame after capturing the British warship Guerriere in the War of 1812.[1]

  • Ali and Dmitriy - Early Demo of Distributed System Designers (Part 2)

    Unfortunately, in this version of VSTA we do not provide physical deployment out-of-the-box. It is planned for V2.

    However, with the Deployment Report feature (it is in the demo too), you can script against the XML file to deploy your applications.The directory structure Deployment Report will create for you will have your binary and content files (if so specificed for Deployment Report generation).

    This product (Visual Studio Team Architect) is a part of Visual Studio Team System. I don't have (and even if I had, I couldn't tell you at this time:) the exact ship date for the product, but Beta 2 will be available in a month or so. Those of you on CTP (Community Technology Preview) program can see all this functionality in their CTP releases.

    Thank you,
    Dmitriy Nikonov
