First Public Beta of Orcas and .Net 3.5

Posted by decipherinfosys on April 25, 2007

The first beta of MSFT’s upcoming Visual Studio product and interim framework was released last week. This next release of Visual Studio is code-named Orcas. This upcoming release of Visual Studio is designed to provide a development environment for Microsoft’s new and upcoming platform advances, such as those in the Windows Vista operating system, 2007 Office System, SQL Server 2005 and Windows “Longhorn” server. It also adds a wide breadth of tooling for everything from back-end data connectivity and unit testing to Web development and UI design.

Beta 1 will not offer tooling for Silverlight, the recently branded cross-browser plug-in technology, formerly known as Windows Presentation Foundation/Everywhere (WPF/E). You can download the CTP (Community Technology Preview) from the MSFT download site.
