Yesterday, Visual Studios 2008 and the .Net Framework 3.5 was released by Microsoft.

I, of course, immediately download the Team Suite edition from MSDN and installed it on a Virtual Machine. Then, went about my daily business of opening up a BizTalk project to get some work done.

The project conversion wizard opened and ran but the projects were unable to open inside Visual Studios. This really wasn’t a big surprise and doesn’t cause me much pain since none of my projects are working with Visual Studios 2008 yet.

I found a news group post that said a patch for BizTalk might be coming out at some point to allow it to work with Visual Studios 2008. But I have not heard anything about a timeline.

To summarize, have fun working with Visual Studios 2008 but keep in mind you might have a hard time doing BizTalk development.
