Visual Studio 2010 will vastly improve Sharepoint development

Microsoft is really improving the tooling support for Sharepoint developers in the next release of Visual Studio including being able to “F5” debug from inside Visual Studio and VS handling all the package deployment, process attaching, app pool recycling etc which will be really helpful.

Also they will be providing lots of VS templates which give us some nice designers for things like WebParts and Features so we don’t have to worry about GUID matching and hand writing our XML files which should save bundles of time when setting up and new solution.

Channel9 have a cool video screen cast which gives a brief overview of what’s coming in VS 2010 for Sharepoint devs.
