New SharePoint Developer Features in Visual Studio 2010 SP1

This download installs Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Beta. This service pack beta release addresses issues that were found through a combination of customer and partner feedback, as well as internal testing. These service packs offer Visual Studio users improvements in responsiveness, stability and performance. Feedback received during this beta release will be used to deliver a final release of the service pack.

As part of VS 2010 SP1 SharePoint developers can now take advantage of IntelliTrace as well as create unit tests that use SharePoint API’s.

With 64-bit support now enabled in IntelliTrace, you can use IntelliTrace in your SharePoint farm solutions. You can set a break-point in your code or break execution and then view the IntelliTrace data. You can also collect IntelliTrace data and save the .itrace log file for viewing at a later time.

For those SharePoint developers that create unit tests, you can now create and execute unit tests for your SharePoint 2010 solutions even if they use SharePoint API’s. In order to execute these unit tests you first need to deploy your SharePoint solution to your local developer machine. After that, you can execute the unit tests as you would normally.

Please install Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Beta, try these new features
