Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2005 Service Pack 1

Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2005 Service Pack 1 is now available as a download from MSDN.

Go to: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=BB4A75AB-E2D4-4C96-B39D-37BAF6B5B1DC&mg_id=10055&displaylang=en

Service Pack 1 also provides over 70 improvements for common development scenarios including:

  • New processor support (e.g., Core Duo) for code generation and profiling
  • Performance and scale improvements in Team Foundation Server
  • Team Foundation Server integration with Excel 2007 and Project 2007
  • Tool support for occasionally connected devices and SQL Server Compact Edition
  • Additional support for project file based Web applications
  • Windows Embedded 6.0 platform and tools support

The complete release notes can be found at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928957/.

As it turns out, it's pretty unclear what has been fixed in this service pack. The 'What's New in Visual Studio 2005 SP1' page doesn't provide any information. Back in September Somasegar promised to provide a list of fixes, but in his post about the release of SP1 he makes no mention of what has been fixed.

Update: a list of fixes in Visual Studio 2005 SP1 can be found at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/918526/en-us
