Latest version of ubiquitous IDE to launch by end of November

Microsoft have announced that the latest version of its Visual Studio integrated development environment, Visual Studio 2008, will be released by the end of November.

In addition, the latest version of the .NET Framework will be launched as a free Windows Update at the same time. Version 3.5 of the Framework largely consists of bug fixes and performance updates, with additional assemblies also included.

“Traditionally, organizations have been hard pressed to deliver the richer, more connected applications and services they need to boost productivity, drive revenue and stay ahead of the competition,” said S. Somasegar, corporate vice president of the developer division at Microsoft.

“With Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5, it is easy for developers to use the skills they already have to build compelling applications that take advantage of the latest platforms.”
