Visual Studio 11 final product line up revealed

Earlier in May, Microsoft revealed a number of changes it was planning to make to Visual Studio 11 in between the current beta version and the upcoming release candidate build of the software development tool. Now Microsoft has revealed the final product lineup for Visual Studio 11 (technically,  a codename for what Microsoft will likely call Visual Studio 2012 when the final version is released).

The people who like free software will be happy to know that Microsoft will offer free versions of Visual Studio 11 under the “Express” branding. Of course, there will be a Visual Studio 11 Express for Windows 8 and Microsoft says it will support C#, Visual Basic, C++ and JavaScript. There will also be Visual Studio 11 Express versions for Web development along with Visual Studio 11 Express for Windows Azure.
