Visual Studio 2008 RTM’d

Monday 26th November, 2007 at 1:37 pm 1 comment

Visual Studio 2008 has RTM’d – if you’re a lucky MSDN subscriber (alas I’m not 😦 ) you can download it from the subscriber site.  Luckily you can download a 90 day trial of VS 2008 Team Server (basically VS 2008 with a few extra bells and whistles) from here.

Initial impressions are that it’s stable and pretty functional.  I’m in the middle of a WPF application for a client and the rtm is holding up better than the Beta 2 did.

I’m a little disappointed with the visual designer for WPF – it doesn’t really help much in terms of productivity.  The xaml editing is responsive and in a limited way helpful – but could do with a little more oomph added to the intellisense.  The intellisense is  lacking a bit with binding statements (in bold) such as:

<ListBox Grid.Row="1" Name="lstContacts" 
  IsSynchronizedWithCurrentItem="True" 
  ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource contactsViewSource}}" />
