On Friday, Microsoft's Visual Web Developer Team announced through its blog
that Visual Studio 2008 Web Deployment Projects is now available for download.
The "release to Web" (RTW) version follows the community technology
preview (CTP) released last month. The Visual Studio 2008 add-on has everything
the Visual Studio 2005 WDP does, the company said, plus new features for creating
IIS applications, for example, and tools for upgrading from the previous version
(although they can also be run "side-by-side").
"Since the December CTP we have been monitoring the blogs, MS Connect feedback system as well WDP forums to collect your feedback and then have been working over last month or so to incorporate it within the product," wrote Vishal R. Joshi, program manager of the Visual Web Developer Team. "We are very excited to have you all try this RTW version."
The RTW can be downloaded here.
