Microsoft is rolling out this week the first service pack (SP) for Visual Studio 2010.

On March 8, MSDN subscribers will be able to download and install SP1. MSDN subscribers also can get, as of today, the Team Foundation Server Integration Feature Pack (as part of the Visual Studio Ultimate SKU), which facilitates integration of Visual Studio, Project and SharePoint.  The general public can get access to the bits on March 10, according to company officials.

Visual Studio SP1, which has been in beta since December 2010, includes improved support for Silverlight 3 and 4 tools; the inclusion of Windows 7-specific MFC (Microsoft Foundation Class) programming interfaces to support use of Direct2D, DirectWrite, and Windows Animation; and a new local Help Viewer.

Beta 2 of Visual Studio LightSwitch ("KittyHawk") also will be made available "in the coming weeks," according to a March 7 blog post by Developer Division chief Soma Somasegar. Beta 2 will add new capabilities for building line-of-business apps that target Windows Azure and SQL Azure, Somasegar said.

LightSwitch is a rapid-application-development tool targeted at fledgling coders who are interested in building business applications. Microsoft made a public beta of it available in August 2010.

    When will I be able to develop iOS apps in VS? This was a rumor last year and Ballmer was to speak at MacWorld or some Mac event. I have a group of users who want to test an iphone app but none of our developers want to use a Mac.

    This junk is still around? Most likely the last year you will see it supported before Microsoft drops this giant pile of bloatware.

      @james347 Best integrated development environment around on top of the best application frameworks (BCL, .NET, ASP.NET, Silverlight, XNA, WPF) and programming language (C#) in the world. Why would they drop it? Google and Apple are at least ten years behind!

      What a silly boy you are. Apparently you have never used it, or are not a developer. Just curious though, what product do think is even close? (I agree with Tiggster; everything else seems years behind).

    fgsdfgdfgNow, if the daughter had her contacts stored in her Mac's Address Book or on the MobileMe cloud, there's just no need for her to reenter those manually and I strongly doubt that the Genius employee would have suggested it. Thankfully the iPhone/iTunes sync features give this extra level of redundancy, but you have those sync features turned on, and you have plug your phone into your computer once in a while.
