Next Visual Studio going multi-screen?

Program like a city trader

New hybrid storage solutions

Microsoft has again hinted at changes in the next major release of Visual Studio allowing developers to spread out across different monitors.

Noah Coad, Microsoft program manager for the Visual Studio platform, has confirmed changes are in the works that will help developers build applications in some kind of split-screen mode on different monitors.

Coad was speaking almost a year after he first raised the subject, when he began taking feedback on improvements to the next major Visual Studio release, version 10.

While Coad made no specific commitments, it does seem Microsoft has taken an early round of feedback seriously enough to factor it into Visual Studio 10.

The changes are part of an expected package that'll see major changes to the interface. Also expected: another round of improvements to IntelliSence, support for SQL Server Compact databases, and - as ever - tighter integration with Visual Studio Team Server. There's no release date yet for Visual Studio 10.®
