Today, we are making available the Release Candidate (RC) for Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 to all MSDN subscribers. The RC will be made available to the world on Wednesday, February 10th. The RC includes a go-live license for people who want to deploy in their production environment.
Thank you for all the feedback you’ve sent our way so far. The goal of this RC is to get more feedback from you and ensure we’ve addressed the performance issues in the product. We have made significant performance improvements specifically as it relates to loading solutions, typing, building and debugging.
