Visual Studio 2011 Beta First Review.
Note:This post be a part of Visual Studio 2012 feature series. As know Visual Studio 2011 beta known as Visual Studio 2012.
Before some days Microsoft has release visual studio 2011 beta and I have started playing with it. Have you played with it yet? If not then this series of post is for your.
I am basically a developer by heart. So out of latest offering from Microsoft I am concentrating more on Visual studio 2011,ASP.NET 4.5,C# new features and ASP.NET MVC 4. So here we got let’s load visual studio 2011 beta.
Once you load Visual studio 2011 Beta the first thing you notice is start page of the visual studio 2011. It’s streamline with metro style icons and nice UI as below.
Here you also noticed that Microsoft has made Visual Studio 2011 make look really simple and concentrating more on coding part just like metro style apps simple colours and tight and sharpen edges. Once you click on the latest news it will allow you to set your rss feed and under that you will got all latest posting from that RSS feed. By default it will be from Microsoft as you can see in below image.
On the right pane of start page there are options given to create new project ,open existing project and Connect to Team Foundation Server.
Another thing you notice about tool box change now a nice search given to the tool box so you can search among the tool box items as you can see in below image. I am going post more on that on forthcoming posts.
Another thing you notice about Solution explorer. You can see there are lots of new icons like sync with active document,Preview selected item etc just like below in image. I will going to do a separate post on this in forth coming blog posts.
That’s it. In next post I am going discuss about new project dialog and new projects added to Visual Studio 2011 beta. Hope you like this. Stay tuned for more updates.
