MSDN article: “An Inside Look At The Next Generation Of Visual C++”.

Hello

We just wanted to mention that our own Tarek Madkour has recently written an MSDN article titled “An Inside Look At The Next Generation Of Visual C++”. Tarek is a Lead Program Manager on the Visual C++ team and  has been working on different areas of the Visual C++ IDE and compiler for the past six years. This article discusses “Visual Studio Codename Orcas” features such as:

  • Targeting applications to Windows Vista

  • Enhancements to MFC

  • Preparing applications for User Account Control

  • Marshaling native and CLR types

 

We hope you find it an interesting read (the article is currently rating 8 out of 9 on the MSDN quality poll) and please feel free send any questions/comments to us here on the VC Blog!
