    Congrats! As an already-enthusiastic VS2012 RC user, what additional features can be expected? Looking forward to the full version.

    Hi KC,

    On your good question, I will invite Microsoft to answer this directly.

    Hi KC!  I manage Visual Studio for Canada.  Typically Release Candidates are intended to be very close to what is released to manufacturing, so I think you'll find the features in the products extremely close with slight refinements.

    One clarification on this post – on Aug 15 anyone will be able to download the trial, while active MSDN subscribers will be able to download the full version.
