What’s New in Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1?

It’s been a while since Microsoft released VS 2008 SP1.  You could find more details about SP1 in Scott Guthrie’s Post. ADO.NET Entity Framework is something I am looking forward to and hopefully will know more about it when I attend the session.

If you would like to know what’s new in SP1, Microsoft is conducting events across UK this month and here are the details for Manchester,

07-Oct-2008, Manchester, Regus Manchester


Event Description

Audience: Developers

“Service Pack? We’re calling it a Service Pack? Are you kidding??!?!” Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 will release later in 2008 alongside .NET Framework V3.5 Service Pack 1 and, together, they represent a significant upgrade to Visual Studio 2008. There are enhancements across many areas of the .NET Framework such as data access, windows application development and web development and there are also corresponding changes in the development environment to support the new framework features.


Session 1: What’s New for Web & Windows Development?
