Service Pack 1 released for Visual Studio 2003

Posted by David Hunter at 9:12 PM ET.

It’s a little later than anticipated, but S. “Soma” Somasegar, CVP of Microsoft’s Developer Division, has the news at his blog:

Today I’m pleased to announce the availability of Visual Studio .NET 2003 Service Pack 1 (VS .NET 2003 SP1).

The announcement of the availability of SP1 for VS 2003 today, and the timing of this release, speaks to the fact that you have told us over time that Visual Studio .NET 2003 has been an extremely stable product.

The first Service Pack incorporates hotfixes released since Visual Studio 2003 first shipped, Security Updates, critical fixes and other additional fixes for problems that our Visual Studio team testers have discovered. We’ve also incorporated bugs reported through the MSDN Product Feedback Center and the top 50% of crashes reported by the Windows Error Reporting Service. This amounts to more than 400 issues overall that we have fixed in SP1. The Product Feedback Center and Windows Error Reporting have enabled us to respond more directly to issues that you’ve reported. You can get the Service Pack and related information from the download center page.

He mentions but gives no details on the first service pack for Visual Studio 2005 which is expected this quarter. The timing of its release tells us something as well.
