New tools and team support in Visual Studio 2010
Visual Studio 2010 includes numerous improvements to its coding, debugging and testing tools. The IntelliTrace debugger uses a log to enable stepping back as well as forward through code. You can also attach logs to bug reports. Standard UML diagramming has been added to the high-end editions. Team development is easier to set up, thanks to a streamlined installer for the Team Foundation Server which handles shared code repositories, and includes a new feature called gated check-in which can prevent faulty code from being added to a project
Visual Studio 2010 is a major release of Microsoft's software development tool. The changes start with a brand new editor and shell built on version 4.0 of the .net framework and libraries, which itself is new. Microsoft has also added tools to support its cloud platform, Windows Azure, as well as Silverlight, its cross-platform browser plug-in for rich internet applications.
