MS Developer Tool Roadman: 05 and Beyond

Wow. I’ve seen bits and drops of Whidbey (I’m limited to builds that work on Longhorn), so haven’t seen the grand, overall vision of it. In the latest Microsoft Developer Tool Roadmap, they whole darn thing is laid out and the new stuff goes on forever! Details are presented for IDE enhancements, language enhancements for VB, C#, C++ and J#, Windows Forms, ASP.NET, devices, ADO.NET, web services, Office, SQL Server, Analysis and Design (aka Whitehorse”) and even a bit about what’s coming in Longhorn on the tools side. Holy New Stuff, Batman!
