Visual Studio 2005 SP1 Beta Available

The beta of Visual Studio 2005 SP1 is now available! This includes several fixes and enhancements to the Visual Studio 2005 development environment as well as Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server. Brian Harry detailed what this means for Team Foundation Server at his blog entry this morning.

What's your favorite fix or enhancement? Personally I share Brian's enthusiasm for the WIT Custom Controls - it's going to be exciting to watch custom WIT's evolve to the next level. But you also can't dismiss the sheer number of performance enhancements and bug fixes which the team managed to get into this release. Team Foundation Server has come a long way in a short amount of time.
