Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview


Originally posted to Chuck Walbourn's Blog on MSDN,

The Beta is now available, so should be used instead of the older Developer Preview mentioned here.

The next version of Visual Studio is currently available for download as a Developer Preview. This release includes a new C++ compiler and Standard Library with additional C++11 support, an integrated PIX for Windows replacement called Visual Studio Graphics Diagnostics including HLSL debugging, the latest HLSL compiler, and a DDS image viewer (both legacy and ‘DX10’ extension variants).

Note: The VS 11 Developer Preview includes a preview version of the next Windows SDK integrated into the release which requires some build settings changes to compile DirectX SDK samples. See “Where is the DirectX SDK” for details.
