Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 Released

Jason Zander just announced the availability of Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1! The download is available today for MSDN subscribers and will be made available to the general public on Thursday March 10th.

This release addresses customer reported bug fixes as well as some feature updates. Some of my favorites are IntelliTrace support for 64-bit platforms as well as unit testing for SharePoint projects. There is also a much better help viewer included in SP1. Take a look at the full list of changes in the Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server knowledge base articles. Also see this important information on SP1 compatibility with other downloads and the SP1 Readme.

Compatibility Note: Be aware that if you’re evaluating LightSwitch Beta 1, do not install the Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) as these releases are not compatible. Please see the LightSwitch Team Blog for details. If you’ve already installed SP1 then to remove it, go to your Add/Remove Programs and uninstall it there. If you are still having problems, perform a Repair on LightSwitch Beta 1 and you should be up and running again. The LightSwitch team will be addressing this issue very soon with the release of LightSwitch Beta 2 so please stay tuned for more information.
