Microsoft shows off new developer tools

Microsoft is offering the first look at the company's latest .Net and Visual Studio releases.

The company has announced the newest versions of both developer tools, known as .Net Framework 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010. No official release dates for either product were given.

Team working will be the main focus for Visual Studio 2010. Microsoft plans to upgrade the collaboration and testing tools for the development suite, along with introducing a new modeling tool that is designed to allow non-technical users to model and understand the way in which a new application may function.

"With Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4.0, we are focused on the core pillars of developer experience, support for the latest platforms spanning client, server, services and devices, targeted experiences for specific application types, and core architecture improvements," said Soma Somasegar, senior vice president of Microsoft's developer division.
