After installing Beta 1
on my Vista machine, I found that the look and feel of things I previously blogged about had changed for the better.
* Ctlr+Tab got a facelift. For previous screenshot and the new one see my updated blog post: Ctrl+Tab in Orcas
* The ability to target multiple framework versions from a single IDE is still there but now it is more obvious (they must have heard my winging :-)). Check out my updated post on Multi-targeting
* For Smart Device Projects, I complained about the combobox not remembering the selection and now that is fixed. The VSD team also added a bonus feature in this release. Check out my updated post on the new Project Dialog
* Like in previous builds, we have nice rounded selections in the menus...
...if you complete the action of the screenshot above, you will of course get this dialog
. Notice how the treeview under Project Types displays no plus/minus for expanding/collapsing the nodes? If however you hover the mouse on the treeview then new triangle expandos appear as per the following screenshot:
For more on what is going on here read my post on TreeView Vista
(basically the VS team put in the extra effort to spice this up on Vista :-)).
