Looks like it shouldn’t be too much longer before we can get our hands on a build of Visual Studio 2005 Team System. This is great news. Lots of people have been concerned that it wouldn’t receive the same level of testing before it is released since it hasn’t been part of previous community releases. While they are new features and will certainly need some testing to get the bugs out, they are more like extensions to the shell than anything else. The core of the Visual Studio 2005 product, not to mention .NET 2.0 runtime/framework, has been in the community’s hands for some time and that’s more important the way I see it.
