    Hi aL_, I hope this announcement we made last March about C++/CLI IntelliSense answers your wish.

     

    Thanks,

    "DEV316 ALM for C++ in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010"
    Will it be recorded ? Please say yes :)
    Will the other sessions they showed on the screen also be recorded ?

    Where can we download the source code for PhotoBrowser ?
    I've seen that demo project before but never been able to find a download link :(

    Btw Any pre-release visual studio test version coming soon ?
    I want the new c++ compiler :)
    You should begin to release compiler updates as service packs or something like that. Stop be so lazy!

    Having to wait for the next release of visual studio is just a pain.
    I currently keep all my projects compatible with the gcc compiler because of this.
    A few projects i can't even compiler in vs compiler any more.
    vs compiler lags behind too often to be explained away.

    I would even be fine with as-is releases of the compiler, i know many devs that would.

    If you're interested in unit testing in C++, Typemock makes a mocking framework for C++ - http://www.typemock.com/isolatorpp-product-page?utm_source=msdn&utm_medium=msdn&utm_campaign=channel9

    Sorry for the link before. Terry and Rong's work looks really exciting.


    I would recommend trying <a href="http://www.typemock.com/isolatorpp-product-page?utm_source=msdn&utm_medium=msdn&utm_campaign=channel9">Isolator++</a> for <a href="http://www.typemock.com/isolatorpp-product-page?utm_source=msdn&utm_medium=msdn&utm_campaign=channel9">Unit Testing in C++ in Visual Studio</a>

    Awesome, these sort of tools are the kind of things which warm my heart. Instead of MS always trying to cause PR for its own benefit and its own language (C#), its back to being true and being "for the users" similar to how Bill used to describe how he wanted to empower us to customize the computer even if we had to program it.

    I loved the general dependency graphs for C++ at last, twas very nice.

    Adding that unit test was horribly wonky though..... have it automated more with a direct right-click on a .cpp source file with allowance of using check-boxes to determine how the VS template stamps out the initialization of each functions test case which we can fill the meat assertions later.

    @felix9: We're not at the stage in the product cycle where we are disclosing what features appear in what edition of Visual Studio but I can say that we will be aiming for consistentcy with all VS languages in the distribution of these features. What that means is that if an ALM feature is available for one language the same feature should be available for all languages in the same edition.

    It would be great to have a catch-up session for the C9 audience that wasn't present at Tech-Ed Wink
