Announcing Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Applications (VSTA) CTP.

CTP stands for Community Technology Preview.  A CTP is part of Microsoft's continued commitment to delivering a product defined by our customers.  The intent of the CTP is to provide an open, sharing, frequent releases prior to shipping, and is designed to ensure that our customers drive our product functionality.

This is the first comprehensive set of MAF definitions, implementations, and tools.  In the spirit of the Olympics - Let the games begin!

Microsoft is continuing to work toward further open-ness, transparency and solicitation of feedback through blogs, etc..  So if you are a blog reader and if you find value in this information, it would be great to hear from you.  Even if you have no comments on a post, other than, "great information, keep it coming", it would be beneficial to hear from you.  Otherwise, I feel kind of silly posting information that I think will benefit the world, but in reality is just a collection of rambling on.  Come in ground control....
