Visual Studio Team System Development and Database Editions Merged


We continue to receive questions about the merge of Visual Studio Team System Development and Database Editions. While the announcement occurred last year, the content regarding this announcement is no longer available on MSDN.  We are reposting here with excerpt from the press announcement:



In another move to increase integration across the life cycle, Microsoft also announced that VSTS 2010 will provide a unified VSTS Development and Database product. As a benefit to existing Software Assurance (SA) customers, those who currently own Visual Studio Team System 2008 Development Edition or Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition will receive all the following products starting Oct. 1, 2008, for free:

















Visual Studio Team System 2008 Development Edition


Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition


Visual Studio 2005 Team System for Software Developers


Visual Studio 2005 Team System for Database Professionals


The products will be available to SA customers through their normal Microsoft Developer Network channel
