Break Through Your Software Development Challenges with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 White Paper
Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2008 enables organizations to take full advantage of the .NET Framework 3.5 and the 2007 Microsoft Office system to create client, Office, Web, and mobile applications1-and through those applications deliver high-quality, rich user experiences that can help improve business processes and decision-making. Those capabilities are complemented by Microsoft Visual Studio Team System, a comprehensive application lifecycle management solution that provides tools, processes, and guidance to help development teams communicate and collaborate more effectively, ensure quality throughout the development process, and improve visibility into all aspects of the application lifecycle.

…Visual Studio 2008 enables developers to build rich client applications that run on the .NET Framework 3.5, including the ability to enhance existing client applications that are based on the Windows Forms classes in the .NET Framework 2.0. For example, a software-development group at a financial-services company might use an internally-developed desktop program for the analysis of currency trades. With Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5, developers can deliver a new version of the application that provides richer analysis capabilities and the ability to execute modeled trades from within the application, instead of re-entering them into a separate program as they did in the past. Some features of Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5 that enable such enhancements include:
- Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), the graphical subsystem in the .NET Framework 3.5 for taking advantage of the capabilities of today’s modern graphics hardware.
- Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), the communication subsystem in the .NET Framework 3.5 for enabling applications or systems to communicate with one another easily.
- Multitargeting, which allows developers to use Visual Studio 2008 to target the .NET Framework versions 2.0, 3.0, or 3.5 from within a single tool-set.
