Visual Studio 2010/TFS 2010 SP1 Beta

The Visual Studio 2010/TFS 2010 SP1 Beta has been released to MSDN Subscribers.  The SP1 Beta will be released to the general public this Thursday.  The SP1 Beta does come with a “Go Live” license which basically means it can be installed in a production environment and an upgrade path to the final release version will be supported.

There are several new features included in this service pack beta (some of which were previously available as a separate download) as well as quite a few bug fixes.  Some of the new features include:

  • Local Help Viewer
  • Silverlight 4 Tools
  • Unit Testing on .NET 3.5 (yeah!)
  • Intellitrace for 64-bit and SharePoint
  • Performance Wizard for Silverlight
  • VB Compiler runtime switch (/vbruntime)
