Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Beta Released

Microsoft released the first beta Service Pack (SP1) for Visual Studio 2010 yesterday. Here are the download links:

Amongst the SP1 Beta highlights that Jason has summed up in is blog, what caught my attention were the following points:

  • IntelliTrace support for 64bit and SharePoint
  • Performance Wizard for Silverlight
  • Unit Testing on .NET 3.5
  • Silverlight 4 Tools for Visual Studio 2010 Integration

Note: As of this writing, if you are using ASP.NET MVC 3 RC, the VS 2010 SP1 Beta release breaks Razor IntelliSense. However the MVC team is working on a quick fix to be released early next week. This release also breaks Visual Studio Async CTP and I will update this post when a patch is available for the same. Till that time, if you are using Async CTP, stick to the VS 2010 RTM release and do not upgrade to SP1 Beta.

Will you give this article a +1 ? Thanks in advance
