Download Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview - now with SharePoint developer tools

Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview is now available with the SharePoint developer tools and downloadable to public. Earlier version only has the Windows 8 stuff as a new thing along with some user experience improvements. But, in the new version it has the SharePoint developer tools added. So, as I am a SharePoint guy I would like to see what are all the features available in the new version.

Visual Studio 11 is very fast when compared to Visual Studio 2010 and it definitely improves the productivity. This is one of the major point which I like about it. When come back to what are the new features added in SharePoint developer tools, below are the few of them.
  • Create Lists and Content Types by Using New Designers
  • Create Site Columns
  • Create Silverlight Web Parts
  • Publish SharePoint Solutions to Remote SharePoint Servers
  • Test SharePoint Performance by Using Profiling Tools
  • Create Sandboxed Visual Web Parts
  • Improved Support for Sandboxed Solutions.
  • Support for JavaScript Debugging and IntelliSense for JavaScript
  • Streamlined SharePoint Project Templates
  • Related Topics
The MSDN link has all these features explained. Stay tuned for the more updates from this blog as I like to publish more articles on what next...
