The second good news is that unlike previous versions of VS which required you to use the latest framework, VS 2008 let’s you target the .net framework that you want to use. This is fantastic because you get the js intellisense, etc… on any .net framework. You’ll only see classes, etc.. in the object browser for that framework.
Another interesting post in Scott’s write is that MS is includes the MS test suite in it’s professional vs version. Previously you had to have a special version of VS (Visual Studio Team) to write tests. This was a huge sore spot for me, and frankly, I refused to use MS’s test suite when I found this out. It implied that only certain groups should write tests. So, I’ve stuck with NUnit (still my preference)… BUT, at least they are waking up to what the developers in the real world are doing, and it will make me think again about using MS test suite. Ok, rant over
The CSS editor is a great addition – it really is showing that MS is starting to provide the tools on how the ‘real’ web developers work. That is always good to see
That all being said, you can get the juicy details here
