New month, new release... I kept installing all to-date VS2005 Beta/CTPs on a fresh VPC, which costed me some extra time to set up the whole working environment. So, with the latest RC I decided to reuse the August CTP VPC, which I successfully cleaned using the latest version of VS2005 Beta uninstall tool. The process was quick and painless. As for the RC... VS appears to run a bit faster, but I haven't had time to check it out quite yet, since some control incompatibility issues keep me working on the July CTP :(
VS2005 RC was one of the many new tools/technologies presented on this year's PDC, including Atlas, Linq, C# 3.0, VB 9.0, Office 12, VSTA 2005, SQL2005 (VS2005 RC is compatible with SQL2005 Sept. CTP!), and my long time wish, which is now coming true. Busy week.
