Notes on Forthcoming Visual Studio 2005

Microsoft has been demo-ing this stuff publicly for well over a year now, and promoting it with lots of events and articles growing into a crescendo, dare I say orgy, of promotion.
I'm just going to post some links to articles to read.

Rob Caron has a good post describing the different editions
Rick LaPlante(MS) explains on his blog that some of Team System will be included in lesser editions. But the edition pricing information for MSDN Subscriptions shows it comes pretty dearly. Mike Gunderloy of Larkware editorializes on this and provided those links.

The express editions and Beta 2 CTP were posted for download in mid April and disks are said to be shipped in week or two for people who attended MSDN events.

DevExpress, makers of CodeRush, have released a refactoring tool for VB.NET2005
It is promoted on a page at the MSDN site, where there are two short demo videos.
It looks TERRIFIC! I see another refactoring tool advertized out there too.
