Acropolis August CTP (VS 2008 Beta2 Refresh) Release available now

Since VS 2008 Beta2 RTWed, I have gotten quite a few customers asking when we’ll be refreshing “Acropolis” to work with VS 2008 Beta2. Today, I am VERY happy to annouce that “Acropolis” August CTP (aka VS 2008 Beta2 Refresh) is available! 🙂

This release is mainly an update so that our customers can continue to evaluate “Acropolis” with the latest VS 2008 Beta. In addition to VS 2008 Beta2 support, we have also added one small feature named “FloatingLayoutPane”. We have gotten feedback from our customers and in our forum that basic functionality like showing a floating window is too hard in the July CTP. Please let us know what you think.

Please note, the Acropolis August CTP depends on VS 2008 Beta2, it will not work with VS 2008 Beta1.

    Good to know Kathy….Are you going to post any sample for floating layout pane.

    Does the August CTP requires the July CTP to have been previously installed?

    I had been unable to install the July CTP because I was already at Orcas Beta 2.

    When I just tried to install the August CTP it "required" Orcas Beta 1 and would not install on Orcas Beta 2.

    Hi Kathy,

    I installed VS2008 and Acropolis August CTP.

    After, I downloaded Expense sample but it isn’t recognized by VS2008.

    is missing some other software???
