With more than 50 new controls and hundreds of built-in services for site security, personalization and look and feel, Visual Studio Pro 2005 gives you the tools it takes to build fast, interactive Web applications. Enhanced visual designers and editors speed up development times significantly, while intuitive visual designers help to improve your XML editing and XSLT debugging. In short, you can tackle just about any development task, whether its creating dynamic, data-driven applications using an integrated data access, design, and reporting environment, or creating robust applications using the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, the .NET Compact Framework 2.0, and native code -- all supported by Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. You can ! also easily develop for 64-bit systems using a 64-bit version of the .NET Framework.

Cross Machine Debugging and Better Web Publishing
Visual Studio 2005, combined with ASP.NET 2.0, offers an improved environment for publishing and administering a Web site. With the built-in publishing features, such as integrated File Transfer Protocol (FTP), you can keep files in your local project and synchronize them with files located on a remote Web server. Visual Studio automatically logs copied files which helps you to identify whether the remote site has been updated with the latest files. And to help protect your site and your IP, you can pre-compile a Web site to publish only executable code, no source files, to your production server. The Web site configuration interface makes it easy to set up and maintain applications, and the new Web Site Administration Tool helps you manage remote sites. You can manage cache settings at the server and Web site level to improve the performance of your published Web sites. And users can manage their own sites with the new ASP.NET Microsoft Management Console (MMC) plug-in.

The Solution Explorer in Visual Studio 2005 also makes it easy for you to clean up unwanted files. Simply choose Clean Solution from the Build Menu and all the intermediate files and output directories in your whole solution will be removed. For Visual C++, you can also use the Project Only submenu of the Build Menu to clean only the project currently selected in Solution Explorer, without cleaning any project dependencies or solution files. Other features include a new checksum feature that matches multiple source file names without any confusion; provider-driven application services that let you extend the powerful features of Visual Studio Team System by adding your own ASP .NET application services seamlessly, giving you complete control over the tools and environment.
