Microsoft has today announced the availability of final builds of Visual Studio 2010 & .NET Framework 4. Visual studio comes in 4 editions namely – Professional, Premium, Ultimate, and Test Professional. Its full trial version is now available for free download.
According to Brandon LeBlanc,
Visual Studio 2010 provides a great deal of enhancements for developers to make it easier to develop applications including a new editor which now uses the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and multiple monitor support. Visual Studio 2010 represents a major investment by Microsoft to provide developers with the best tools for developing applications targeting the latest Microsoft releases such as Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Phone 7, and Windows Azure.
Visual Studio 2010 has built-in support for Windows 7’s multitouch features (Windows Touch) and the “Ribbon” UI which means developers can easily build applications specifically for Windows 7.
