Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1

VS2008 SP1 is out and you should download and install it. It's got major improvements. And it *finally* has the feature I requested somewhere around Visual Studio beta 2:

"In earlier versions of Visual Studio, the task list is populated by using the ToDo tasks that are specified in open files. In this service pack, the Visual C# IDE extends this functionality. The Visual C# IDE populates the task list by using the ToDo tasks that are specified in the whole solution."

Of course I'll have to see it before I believe it :-) I'm currently downloading the VS2008 SP1 ISO image.

Oh, and if you're going to install SP1, don't forget the run the Service Pack Preparation Tool first. This might safe you some hassle of conflicting hot fixes or betas.

Update: Don't forget the .NET 3.5 Service Pack 1!
