Visual Studio 2010 to be released on 12 April in Las Vegas

15 Jan

A new release date for Visual Studio 2010 has been announced. The multi-purpose developer tool from Microsoft will now be released on 12th April 2010. This news was shared by none other than one of my favorite Microsoftie Mary Jo Foley who came across this news via a one-liner post on Developer Division’s Marketing and Communications Manager Rob Caron’s blog.

Originally 22, March was set as the release date for Visual Studio 2010 but was pushed back due to an unplanned RC (Release candidate) slated to be unveiled in February.

Microsoft introduced the first beta of Visual Studio 2010 in May 2009, while the Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 was unleashed in October 2009.

Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4 will be released in Las Vegas during the Microsoft Visual Studio Launch Conference and Expo which will be held from 12-14 April.
