Visual Studio 2008 now generally available

Posted by David Hunter at 7:46 PM ET.

Visual Studio 2008 was released to manufacturing in November and it has now become generally available:

Microsoft is proud to announce the availability of Visual Studio 2008 in volume licensing, retail, and MSDN download.

This exciting new version was released to manufacturing (RTM) on November 19, 2007 and at that time active MSDN subscribers were able to download it right away.  With its inclusion on the January 2008 volume licensing price list, the product is now available to sell and ship to your customers via Open, Select, Enterprise Agreement (EA), and Full Packaged Product (FPP).

One last hurdle: the marketing hootenanny in Los Angeles on February 27 where VS2008  will be “launched” along with Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008.
