Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 is out!

In case you missed it (which I don’t believe), today we released Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 to MSDN subscribers. On Wednesday, it will become available for everyone else to download.

The build is much more stable and fleshed out then the early CTP preview – I’d say, the functionality of Visual Studio 2010 is at least 95% there already. Our next top priority is fixing performance and making VS fast, sleek and snappy. But it already got its new WPF “skin”, the brand-new WPF editor, historical debugger, architecture explorer, and of course, C# 4.0 and VB 10 new language and IDE features. Also, for the first time ever, F# is in the box just like C# and VB.

In any case – go try it out and tell us what you think. If you have anything to say about the new C# Call Hierarchy toolwindow – let me know.

    Tried out the Call Hierarchy, it really gives useful insight of what the code is doing. But why are the query operator method calls ignored by the Call Hierarchy?

    var r = from i in new[] { 1, 2, 3 }

           where i > 1

           select i;

    The code snippet above calls Enumerable.Where and Enumerable.Select, and I reacon they should go into Call Hierarchy, which is not the case of the current beta. Any hint on this?
