Orcas Designer: The New Hope

by benl

With reference to my last webform designer woes post, someone has pointed me to the upcoming webforms designer in Visual Studio codename Orcas. Apparently Orcas takes the design surface from Expression Web, which is an altogether nicer experience than that of the current Visual Studio products.

Good news as well is that Orcas supports multiple build targets… So .NET 2.0 compatibility is guaranteed too! I’m downloading as I post this and I’ll post a mini-review of sorts as soon as I’ve had a thrash around.
