New Visual Studio Express Editions released

Published November 21st, 2007

In my spare time, I’m still quietly hacking away at C# — courtesy of Microsoft’s free Visual Studio Express C# IDE. I noticed last night that along with the recent release of the full Visual Studio 2008 suite come updated versions of all the Express editions, which is great news.

I had a quick poke around last night and to be honest most of the improvements have little significance to me at this point, although I am quite interested in LINQ. I’m holding off on moving across just at the moment because when you open an existing solution in the new version it renders it incompatible with the old version, and I don’t have time just at the moment to upgrade all my installations. However, it is possible to run both the old and new versions on the same machine.
