Whidbey RTM!

The golden build has been sent to replication (actually it was the end of last week, and if you really want to know, the build itself was done the first week or two of October). Soon, a good 64 bit development environment will be available to an MSDN subscriber near you.


One weakness you might notice for 64 bit development is that there are no wizards for creating a 64 bit project: you must first create a 32 bit project, then add the x64 configuration, then you can delete the 32 bit configuration (or keep it, whatever...) There may be a better wizard available in the next couple months to enable x64 projects as a normal 'Create a new project' wizard. That depends on whether I can convince a few other interested parties to make one (or if I can do it in my copious amounts of spare time).
