"At TechEd Developers, Microsoft announced that Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 will be Released To Manufacturing (RTM) in November. During this MSDN Evening you will get an overview of the language enhancements in Visual Basic 9.0 and Visual C# 3.0, as well as IDE enhancements in this new version of Visual Studio. Topics covered include framework multi-targetting (using Visual Studio 2008 to develop applications running on .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 and/or 3.5), integration of .NET Framework 3.5, LINQ (the Language Integrated Query), anonymous types, the WPF designer, Visual Studio Tools for Office, etc. After this session, you will have a good overview of the new features in Visual Studio 2008 and how developers will benefit from them."
