Visual Studio 11 coming soon

by Edward 10 December 2011 09:31

There is a new version of Visual Studio coming in 2012, and codenamed "Visual Studio 11". The final branding/name has not been confirmed, and will probably only be confirmed once the final product is ready to be made available. Microsoft is aiming for a 4th quarter release, to go with the release of .Net Framework 4.5 and Windows 8.

Here are a few things to look forward too...

  • Support for .Net framework 4.5
  • Windows 8 support
  • Build metro-style applications
  • Support for asynchronous programming in C#
  • Support for state machines in Windows Workflow
  • More tooling for HTML5 and CSS 3 in ASP.Net.
  • Includes templates to help developers in writing Metro-Style — meaning WinRT-based — applications with JavaScript, C#, VB and/or C++.
  • Simplified Toolbar: eliminated the clutter and ensured that you only ever need one row of toolbars to get your job done
  • Improved Solution Explorer: Allows you to search and browse the relationships of types and members within VB, C# and C++ projects.
  • Added search capabilities to the Toolbox and Add Reference Dialog.

Silverlight 6 and Expression Studio 6 will follow after the release of Visual Studio 11, probably in the beginning of 2013.

Update 1 March 2012:

Visual Studio 11 Beta has been released. Below are a few links on the release.
