The new version (2010) of Visual Studio Express has shipped today.
If you never heard of Visual Studio Express, it is the free version of the Microsoft programming tools. When the first version of these tools shipped, it allowed the various different programming enthusiasts to be able to have a compiler without needed to pay an arm and a leg for it.
I’ve used the previous versions quite extensively. Now, they don’t have every feature of the full version, but they are good for most of the things that I have needed to do.
As soon as the semester is over, I’ll be downloading the new version and testing it out. Has anyone else started using the 2010 express version yet?
