Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, including Visual C# 2005, is the latest version of this widely used development system, with numerous feature enhancements and the latest version, 2.0, of the Microsoft .NET Framework. With this development package, Windows developers have at their fingertips the ability to create smart-client applications, Web Services, and mobile or embedded programs, all in the same development environment. Version 2005 is not a minor change to Visual Studio: it is a significant advance, but it does not require retraining for developers already working with the .NET Framework.
