It wasn’t long ago that an original launch date (March 22, 2009) was announced for Team Foundation Server 2010, Visual Studio 2010, and the .NET Framework 4.0. It then got postponed after the product teams realized that they weren’t going to meet that date and have a solid product up high release standards. A new launch date has been announced to be April 12, 2010.
Now remember that launch date doesn’t mean release date! I had a little discussion about it on a previous blog post but hopefully everything will get wrapped up, RTM, and will be available to MSDN Subscriber Downloads before the launch date. Fingers crossed!
[Updated] Also, a Release Candidate will be available for all of these products in February and will include a public “Go-Live” license just like Beta 2. Be sure to upgrade to the RC as soon as possible and report any issues that you may be experiencing quickly since the time between RC and RTM will be very short. I’m sure the product group’s largest goal is to make sure there are no show-stoppers being discovered in the RC.
