I thought I would inform those who are not aware. Microsoft has released a CTP of Visual Studio 10, among which contains Visual C++ 10.
What is so special about this, is that it is one of the first that contains a working implementation of some of the C++0x features. Namely they are lambda expressions, rvalue references, static_assert and the auto keyword. And more are coming.
It also contains some parallel implementations of some STL functions, such as for_each. The parallel implementations are designed for multi-core systems.
They have also improved MFC to support new APIs in Vista & Win7 (as well as the modern interface).
Another new thing for Visual Studio 10, or as I have heard is that they have improved debugging speed, among other things.
All in all, it is gearing up to be one very nice release!
The CTP is available for public download at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...ng=en#filelist
