The Release Candidate (RC) for Visual Studio 2010 was made available for download for MSDN subscribers yesterday (Feb 8). It will be made available to the public from the VS 2010 site on Feb 10th.
Just to be clear, there are no new features or functionality in the RC over Beta 2. The RC work is solely focused on performance.
We’re interested in your feedback about the Release Candidate. You can provide feedback at the following link: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=151797
