General Download of VS2010 / .NET Framework 4.0 Beta 1


On Monday I posted a detailed walk through of Beta 1 here.  Beta 1 has been available to MSDN subscribers since Monday and will be available to everyone as of 10 AM PST today (Wednesday May 20).  I’m about to catch a plane from JFK to Seattle so I’m posting the links now:)  They will be live after 10 AM PST:

This beta does have full setup available so you can provision it yourself.  The product is designed to work cleanly with VS2008, however like any pre-release software you should be careful about using the product on your main machine.  We are not (yet) opening the product up for general ‘go live’ usage; our goal is to get your feedback on the feature set and direction we are headed.

I really want to hear your feedback!  I will definitely follow blog comments, but the best way to give us that feedback is through the Visual Studio 2010 / .NET Framework 4 Beta 1 site.  You can get your issues and suggestions routed to the teams directly by going through this route.

Over the next week I’ll be posting a couple of tutorials that you can use to try out new functionality.  Stay tuned…
