Today Microsoft release officially Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.0, with five major release events and many others across the globe. You can download it from MSDN. Those that don’t have an MSDN subscription can try the evaluation versions available here. Express editions are still available for free and can be downloaded from here.
During past months I have wrote various posts about the changes and new features for Visual C++. A summary of these articles are available here.
An important change in Visual Studio 2010 is that F#, now at version 2.0, is bundled in the IDE, just as the other languages, C++, C# and VB.NET. After 7 years in development it had become a first class language with today’s release.
