Visual Studio SP1 Refresh Releases!

Brian Harry


Yesterday we released VS 2005 SP1 refresh (this is what we have, in the past, called the Vista GDR).  Primarily it is a set of bug fixes to make VS 2005 work really well on Vista.  You can read more about it here:
And you can download it here:

I don’t know if we plan to “officially” publish the bug fix list but here’s a copy that I’ve scrubbed for you.  You can see that it actually wasn’t that many bugs in all:
