Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 Beta 2 Released
Visual Studio 2010 boasts a great new user interface with better contrast and lots of UI elements that tend to add confusion to the development process. It’s pretty amazing how getting rid of a few lines increases usability.
For developers redistributing the .NET Framework, perhaps the best news is how much smaller and faster runtime deployment is. Peter Marcu also describes robustness features added to .NET Framework 4 setup such as attempting to fix common problems and retrying installation automatically.
