As a developer I am pleased with the new Visual Studio 2010 release.
Lots of features were added and the editor looks more tight and solid than its predecessors.
BI people still have to wait to taste the Visual Studio 2010 candy.
SQL Server 2008 only ships the Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) for Visual Studio 2008, which is understandable because Visual Studio 2010 didn’t exist when SQL Server 2008 was released.
Enthusiastuc BI users who wanted to convert there existing reporting project to a Visual Studio 2010 project already reported (here and here) that the conversion failed.
The official statement from Microsoft:
Business Intelligence Development Studio for Visual Studio 2010 is currently under consideration for future releases of SQL Server.
So we can only hope that SQL Server 2008 R2, which was released on May 3 on MSDN will (probably?) be released at May 21, will ship BIDS 2010, although I just can’t find an official statement from Micrsosoft on that, so we have to wait until May.
UPDATE: Just downloaded and installed the SQL Server 2008 R2 Business Intelligence Development Studio. Unfortunately it only works in Visual Studio 2008.
