Visual Studio 2012 and TFS 2012 RC are here

Yesterday, it was announced that Visual Studio 2012 and TFS 2012 Release Candidate were available for download.

You can download them here: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/11/en-us/downloads#groups

Up until now, Microsoft has been using the VS11 and TFS11 names, which has been a bit confusing for people as it keeps being referred to as TFS 2011, so this will make things a little clearer for people.

One thing to note is that you can now pick which edition of Visual Studio you’d like to install (Beta only had Ultimate), so now you can pick between Ultimate, Premium, Professional, and Test Professional:

Overall, they simplified their offerings and made some features available to the “lower” editions.  You can see the differences between all editions here: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/11/en-us/products/compare

There’s also a pricing preview: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/11/en-us/products/pricing
