Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0 first news...

Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 are so new, lots of new interesting features for developers were available after their launch and... Microsoft today has unveiled something about Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0. Surprised?

Obviously, we'll see more and more about VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 in the next months, but what seems to be clear after the first news is that VS 2010 will be more centered around the Application Lifecycle Management. Also Somasegar explains the future key concepts:

We will embrace the needs of all the users in the lifecycle – from architects to developers, from project managers to testers, and from idea to delivery – and provide tools that they can all use as needed. Key to a shared understanding of the application is the use of modeling tools.

Microsoft seems to push always more the Visual Studio Team System model (and I agree), but don't forget that not every developers needs the Team System advanced features, but they needs better tools for writing code and for UI design.

My little personal dream? I hate Expression Blend and Visual Studio as separate products: why not having a unified product with a more interesting visual designer?
