Visual Studio 2010 Feature Pack 2 available soon…


Feature Packs enable you to extend Visual Studio 2010 with capabilities that enhance and complement the existing tools.  Visual Studio 2010 Feature Pack 1 (“Visual Studio 2010 Visualization and Modeling Feature Pack”) features will be included in Feature Pack 2.

Feature Pack 2 enables you to expand test coverage of platforms for your applications through world-class tool support.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Feature Pack 2 brings more advanced platform and tool support for both manual and automated testing scenarios, leveraging Visual Studio 2010 Premium, Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, or Visual Studio Test Professional 2010. 

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Feature Pack 2 will enable the following scenarios:

Silverlight 4

  • Capture and playback of Action Recordings for Silverlight 4 Applications
  • Automated coded UI tests to be written and executed against Silverlight 4 applications
  • Ongoing edits to coded UI test projects using a graphical editor

Firefox

  • Fast Forward of action recordings from Microsoft Test Manager for Mozilla Firefox 3.5+
  • Automated testing from Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 for Mozilla Firefox 3.5+ (playback only).

The Visual Studio 2010 Feature Packs download page will be updated the day the Feature Pack is released (next couple of weeks).
