Highlights Planned for VS2010

See for some snapshots of the new VS2010 user interface. Some things I like:

New support in the editor for outlining: Colors on margin indicating edit status, triangle glyphs, ellipses.

Improved New Project dialog: online template viewing, a search box, easier navigation, multi-targeting includes .NET Framework 4.0 as an option.

New Extension Manager: many third parties have built extensions to Visual Studio and now VS2010 will provide a robust management tool to better find/integrate/manage extensions. See and for some examples.
