Singularity RDK 2.0 and the Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition

In discussion (http://www.codeplex.com/singularity/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=23631) ohodson wrote that in RDK 2.0 will be VS2008 support.
As I understand, this isn't related to Express Edition series, or?..

Hi rommanio. RDK 2.0 does include VS2008 support, meaning that you will be able to open Singularity projects in Visual Studio if you give the "/vs" option to setenv.cmd. This should work with both the commercial version of Visual Studio and the Express Edition. This feature is only for convenience; all the build tools needed for building Singularity come with it.

Hi Derrick.
Thanks at all!
But, however, when it will be released?.. ;)

Not long! We're working on it and it's likely to be delivered within one week.

The documentation for this is a bit buried, but if you run "setenv /vs", then from the same command prompt you can then open any .csproj file in the tree as a project in Visual Studio using "start" (provided your file associations are set up correctly). It will support building in Visual Studio as well. This feature is useful when developing a component, but when a building a complete system it's still recommended to build from the command line. I hope this helps.

It would be nice if Singularity supports the full advantages of .NET Framework.
