Visual Studio 2005 and .NET Framework 2.0 go gold, SQL Server 2005 too

Posted by David Hunter at 3:46 PM ET.

S. “Soma” Somasegar announces it at his weblog:

Earlier today, we shipped Visual Studio 2005 and .NET Framework 2.0!

This is by far the best Visual Studio and .NET Framework release that we have ever done. I am very proud to be a part of the team that did a phenomenal job of delivering this fantastic product. I also want to take this opportunity to thank the community and early adopter customers for their incredible help and invaluable contributions in helping us ship the right product.

Later in the day, the final bits will be up on MSDN for our MSDN subscribers around the world to get access to the product.

The same for SQL Server 2005 as Adam Wiener reports:

This is my first blog post here and it couldn’t be anything I’m more excited about! Today it is just announced that SQL Server 2005 is ready for primetime and has been released to manufacturing.

I’m already seeing notices that VS 2005 and SQL Server 2005 are on MSDN which is probably being swarmed by downloaders about now. They should be generally available sometime in the next few weeks depending on the channel. The big launch event is November 7.

Update: .NET Framework 2.0 is, of course, publicly available and ActiveWin reports that the distributables are now avalable on regular, public Microsoft Downloads.
