SP1 for Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Fx 3.5 released!

El dia de hoy fue lanzado el SP1 de Visual Studio 2008 y .NET Framework 3.5. Aquí les comparto un mensaje de Soma:

“This morning we signed off and released Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.   This is an incredible customer focused release - thank you!

Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Fx 3.5 were ground breaking releases when we shipped them last November, but we know that there is always a little bit more we can do.  We listened to our customers’ feedback on these products and responded quickly to enhance their experience with these releases. 

Most of you know that this took a few days longer than we wanted to release because of a late found bug.  However, I’m happy we made the right call to fix the issue that would have impacted our customers and proud that we took the stance we did.  I always say this, “People don’t often remember the exact date we shipped, but will remember the quality (or lack thereof) for a long time”.  As much as we want and need to be predictable in our delivery of products, we should make sure that we balance that with doing the right thing from a quality perspective. 

Not only were we able to fix the customer impacting bugs in this Service Pack, but we continued to add value to these products by putting in new features that they were asking for.  A few examples of this are the .NET Client Profile which drastically reduced the size of the .NET Framework (by over 86%!) to allow for ease of deployment for .NET applications, support for SQL Server 2008 both in Visual Studio and through features such as the ADO.NET Data Services and ADO.NET Entity Framework, as well as multiple enhancements to ASP.NET and TFS.  The performance and reliability issues we fixed in Visual Studio gives increased productivity to all developers.

This is a release you should all be proud of.   Thank you for all your hard work and now onward to Dev10!
