Official VS 2008 RTM Date?

leave a comment »

Update 11/19/2008: Here is news on the VS 2008 MSDN release.

This is still speculation, but it looks like Don Box is saying that VS 2008 and .Net 3.5 will release on next Thursday. It’s possible that he is talking about some other product release, but it wouldn’t make much sense at this point.

He said “Lots of .NET families will have something extra to be thankful for next thursday.”  “Next Thursday” could be either November 15th or November 22nd.

Either way it’ll be good to have the bits in the next few weeks.

Update on 11/13/2007: Don posted a clarification on his blog saying he didn’t intend to suggest the RTM date.  He actually was referring to Thanksgiving (and turkey).  He narrowed it down for us saying that Microsoft only ships on Tuesdays and Fridays. :)
