VS.NET 2005 Hotfix download pilot program
I expect that anyone who has worked for any time in Visual Studio, especially on the web side, has earned themselves a few more grey hairs due to the odd bug or two.
I’ve been neta testing SP1 for a few weeks now and apart from one or two issues it does correct a few of the more painful bugs, it’s not perfect though and I’d expect it to be a while before it’s released.
The good news is that Microsoft seem to have recognised the pain users have to go through to get hotfixes and seem to have done something about it.
you can get more details from Frans Bouma’s blog.
