Very Quick Note: Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 was released finally (in combination with .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 of course).
To sum up for some people, note that VS 2008 SP1 includes ADO.NET Entity framework (and its designer) as well as ADO.NET Data Services, but NOT ASP.NEt MVC framework (but does include ASP.NET Dynamic Data & ASP.NET AJAX history control and script combining). It also includes some WCF enhancements as well as major VS performance and scalability fixes.
- ISO Donwload (and instructions)
- Readme (MUST READ: There`re many ridiculous known issues)
- Official Page (Read for list of new stuff included)
- ASP.NET 3.5 SP1 Page (Details and Videos for most big features – RECOMMENDED)
- Soma’s Announcement
SQL Server 2008 also was released earlier last week.

How did I learn that?
As a bonus for coming here, I'm giving away a free newsletter for web developers that you can sign up for from here.
It's not an anything-and-everything link list. It's thoughtfully collected picks of articles and tools, that focus on Angular 2+, ASP.NET (4.x/MVC5 and Core), and other fullstack developer goodies.
Take it for a test ride, and you may unsubscribe any time.
You might also want to support me by checking these out [Thanks]:
