Well, you could hardly have missed that Visual Studio 2008 shipped this week.
Go get it from the downloads section in our VSX Developer Center.
Getting through the last few shipping tasks has meant it's been quite a week or so. You'll maybe have noticed that I have been even more neglectful than usual of this blog in the last month or so. That's because personally for me it's been quite a month as I've relocated to beautiful Redmond, WA, USA. I'll be continuing as the dev lead on all things VS eXtensibility and DSL, so that's one piece of continuity in my life!
Enjoy the new SDK.
