“Orcas” March 2007 CTP is Ready for Download!
Microsoft has released both the VPC image and the installable components for the latest Orcas CTP. It’s downloading as I type! This release is filled with a great deal of web bits that I’m looking forward to—especially the new web forms designer and the ability to choose my framework on project creation!
Scott Guthrie has posted up an excellent walkthrough of the new functionality if you didn’t catch it earlier this month.
Visual Studio code name “Orcas” delivers on Microsoft’s vision of smart client applications by enabling developers to rapidly create connected applications that deliver the highest quality rich user experiences. This new version enables any size organization to rapidly create more secure, manageable, and more reliable applications that take advantage of Windows Vista and the 2007 Office System.
