has promised that its Visual Studio 2008 and the .Net Framework 3.5s will be released by the end of November.
"Soma" Somasegar, Corporate Vice President of the Developer Division at Microsoft, confirmed the release and added that Redmond will be giving some of its partners greater access to the integrated development environment source code.
Visual Studio 2008 and the .Net Framework 3.5 will allow developers to build connected applications for Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, the 2007 Microsoft Office system, mobile devices and the Web.
Writing in his blog, Somasegar said there were a large number of partners working with Visual Studio. For this reason he is planning to remove license restrictions with Visual Studio and the Visual Studio SDK to enable people to use the Visual Studio IDE and build applications that target the platform of your choice.
