C# Edit and Continue is here!

Finally we have announced C# Edit and Continue, the 2nd most requested feature in all of VS (according to the Ladybug tool). The whole team across all the disciplines really pulled together to get it done.

As a point of history you can read my original blog on the subject of why we were not doing it. Sometimes I cannot reveal the full story of things at the time, and this was one of those times. Sorry.

It was in reasonable shape for beta 1, but it was disabled in that build right before we shipped it. At least you can try it yourselves now. Enjoy!

    I’m still reading. I’m glad to hear the original question as to why it was so difficult is now moot.

        Good to see C# is keeping up with VB 😉

    You can download the CTP build that features C# EnC from http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/vs2005/downloads/default.aspx

    Note this is an Express build, which means the debugger proffers a simplified user experience.

    It was hard; it was just as hard as we always thought it was. Luckily we have some really great people who were able to make it happen.
