Bill Gates ha annunciato oggi alla MDC di San Francisco il rilascio della "Community Technology Preview" di Visual Studio 2005.
The “community technical previews” or CTPs are a series of pre-beta code updates that will be distributed to targeted segments of the developer community between VSLive! and the first beta of the product. The purpose for the CTPs is to gather additional product feedback from our customers and ensure that Visual Studio 2005 incorporates the highest levels of stability, security, and overall product quality.
La CTP sara' disponibile anche per gli Alpha testers, i partecipanti di PDC 2003 e agli abbonati MSDN Universal.
