Visual Studio 2008 (Orcas) to RTM in November

Posted by David Hunter at 11:29 AM ET.

Microsoft had promised that Visual Studio 2008 (codename “Orcas”) would be released in 2007 and now the date is sometime this month:

BARCELONA, Spain — Nov. 5, 2007 — Today, during the keynote address at Microsoft TechEd Developers 2007, S. “Soma” Somasegar, corporate vice president of the Developer Division at Microsoft Corp., announced that Microsoft will release Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5 by the end of November 2007.

Microsoft has made available a high level overview of  the Visual Studio 2008 features, but I like to think of it as the first tool release with complete Vista support including the Cider visual designer.

Additionally Microsoft also announced:

The first one helps Microsoft fight the data sharing advantage of Web-based applications, the second gives Popfly a bit of a boost, and the third apparently addresses some esoteric needs.
