You may have seen a glimpse of the Visual Studio 2010 editor in the past couple of months, but you’ve never seen it look like this! At VSLive! in San Francisco last week, Visual Studio General Manager Jason Zander unveiled a completely new UI for Visual Studio 2010. It’s built on WPF, which not only has a modern look but also gives VS users unprecedented ability to extend the editor with rich visualizations.
Take a look at this screenshot:
Like what you see? You can read Jason’s blog post about the new UI here, or check out some of the press coverage here and here. You’ll be able to play with the revamped Visual Studio 2010 when we release a beta version; the date hasn’t been announced yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
Now that the world has been introduced to more of the editor, the team will also be making more frequent posts to this blog, so be sure to check back here for weekly updates, tips & tricks, and discussions. And please make use of the comments and the Email link – we’re listening, we will respond, and your feedback will help make Visual Studio 2010 even better.
Enjoy the new UI!
