Bill Osuch - Random geek notes

The Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview was released to MSDN subscribers yesterday, and will be available in general release tomorrow (9/16).

There's way too many new features to list them all here (for all the product highlights go to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd547188(v=VS.110).aspx), but here are a few that interest me the most:

  • Enhanced multi-monitor support
  • .NET Framework regular expression syntax in Find and Replace
  • IntelliSense enhancements for JavaScript
  • JavaScript breakpoints on specific locations in a single line of code
  • Simplified approach to asynchronous programming
  • Image and texture editing
  • LocalDB Engine (used to access a SQL Server "Denali" database file (.mdf))
  • Support for HTML5 and CSS3 in the Visual Web Developer
  • .NET APIs for Metro style apps

It doesn't look like there's much of anything new for the C# crowd other than the new Async feature... most of the improvements seem to focus around the framework itself, ASP.Net, C++ and F#.
