Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and new MSDN launch today!

Visit the landing page for VS2010 and .NET 4.0 to learn more and to download the bits.  One of the most exciting aspects of this release is that the quality and completeness have met high enough standards that we have declared it “Go Live” quality, which means you can begin developing production applications with VS 2010 beta 2.

I’d love to hear your feedback on building parallel applications with this release, especially around the completeness of experience between the programming models (PPL, TPL, PLINQ), debugger, and profiler.

We’ve also launched a new MSDN online experience, which included updates to over 11k DevCenter pages across 37 worldwide locales! You might particularly appreciate the new MSDN Library, which includes new “Lightweight” and “Script Free” that enable you to dial your experience based on bandwidth and web browser type.
