TFS 2010 and Visual Studio 2010 Release Candidate Available

The Release Candidate for Visual Studio 2010 and Team Foundation Server 2010 was made available a few days to MSDN Subscribers.  It’s now going to be made available to the rest of the world today:

The first impression I have is that Visual Studio has been super super snappy and lot more purple :)  You can really take advantage of all of the performance work that has been performed by the product groups.  What’s funny is that I have was too slow several times to grab the screenshot below! :)


I have also done several TFS 2010 Beta 2 to RC upgrades so far and all of them have gone super well including a super complex setup that we have at Notion Solutions.  If you are planning on upgrading from Beta 2 to RC, be sure to read the Upgrade Guide before you get started.

As with the Beta 2, the RC of TFS, Visual Studio, and .NET Framework 4 can be used in production with a “Go-Live” license.  Be sure to check out Jeff Beehler’s blog post that has more information about the “Go-Live” license including how to register for complimentary support in case you need it.

After you get everything installed and used it for a few days, please be sure to give feedback about whether you think the release is ready to go by taking the RC survey.  There is only a limited time to give any feedback and the bar is high for things that will change before RTM so don’t delay!
