VS2005 and .NET is shipping!

The newest version of Miscrosoft's development suite - and the matching .NET framework - has just ben released to MSDN subscribers!

Kudo's to Geoff for watching so attentively. You may not have gotten the scoop buddy but you were the first person I saw that made the announcement. :)

Personally, our company will be making the switch (from VS2003) quite quickly, and I can't wait.

Beware though folks, if you're compiling C++ code you may have a fair chunk of work migrating. The compiler is significantly more strict and we've found many errors (and warnings) that have to be rectified. As a positive, remember that your code will be cleaner when you're finished!

Hey Matty! Yeah, I wanted (sorta) the scoop - mostly I just wanted to download it as quick as possible so I could spend friday playing, but it's ended up that I had to wait until I got home from work.

Damn sleep. If I hadn't gone to bed, I woulda got it sooner!
