Visual Studio 2008 highlights include:
• New and improved visual designers
• The ability to target different versions of the .NET framework
• The introduction of LINQ to make it easy to build data-driven applications
Web developers are well catered for in the new release. Included support for ASP.NET, AJAX and Silverlight make creating rich interactive web applications easier than ever.
Collaboration was one of the key strengths of Visual Studio 2005, and this release builds on that success. Visual Studio 2008 is a powerful way for development teams to work together at every stage of the development process, from project foundation right through to deployment.
Developers already using Visual Studio 2005 will find migration straightforward - most settings will carry straight over to Visual Studio 2008.
