Find out about VS2010 on Channel9

If you want to find out what’s coming up in Visual Studio 2010 you have to check out the new podcast on Channel9 called 10-4. The first podcast of the series shows you how to download and install VS2010. The cool thing is that installation is already available as a virtual machine so you don’t need to worry about messing up you development machine.

The second episode shows a feature that is really simple but I always wanted. It let’s you manage you list of recent projects so that you can pin or remove projects. I know, I know… this is not going to change my life and there are a whole lot of more meaningful features but I just thought it was pretty cool since I’ve always wanted this.

Visit the 10-4 podcast site and draw your own conclusions on VS2010 new features.
