PDC 2008 VS 2010

Scott Guthie demoed some cool new stuff for the forthcoming Visual Studio 2010. Visual Studio 2010 is going to be built entirely on WPF. This gives us some sweet and long requested features like multi screen support and a easy way to extend the IDE with custom controls and widgets.
Separate settings for test stages, production stage and so on.

New versions of IIS will have Smooth streaming, this addition enables IIS to stream media based on the hosts bandwith and computer power, just like other 3'd party options.

For us using Visual Studio 2008 Scott anounced the release of the JQuery intelisence files for VS. this will be availiable from Microsoft and the jQuery homepage.

A new Silverligth Toolkit with controls is also being launched, like new charting controls and datagrids. All this controls are beeing released as open source code, so that we can change them and tweek them to our needs.

Man, this week is just getting better!
