VS2010 Planned Features and "Later" Features

for a list of planned features for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and some features planned for future features AFTER Visual Studio goes out.

For VS10:

* A new Windows Presentation Foundation-based (WPF) text editor
* More “modern,” with more of a WPF look and feel throughout the suite
* Smaller in size (in code and data) than Visual Studio 2008
* More reliable and modular

For some time “later”:

* Visual Studio Tools for Applications (VSTA) used for macros, plus other “end-user extensibility” improvements
* The ability to create more add-ins in managed code
* Full WPF shell
* Extensive support for the parallel framework for multicore hardware

Like just about every Microsoft product these days, VS 10 is going to get the Software+Services treatment ....
