I'm just wondering which version of Visual Studio doppler is going to be developed under.
I think that it would be good if it could support Visual Studio 2008 Standard rather than Professional
as Professional is more expensive for hobby/home use.

What do other people think?

P.S. I haven't upgraded to 2008 yet but plan to when it launches.
The question is do I upgrade to 2008 Standard or Pro.

Hello,

If you check out my first, and so far only, real blog post, I went over some things that have been discussed by the developers on the project.

To answer your question directly, visual studio 2008 express versions will be able to work with the Doppler project. Some of us may be using other versions due to access to MSDN accounts.

Cool. I didn't realise the 2008 express versions supported multiple projects.
Another tool that I recommend is TestDriven.NET. It's a great addin for running NUnit tests inside VS.
However VS express doesn't support the addin model so I think this will only run with standard and above.

I use TestDriven.NET for my integrated testing.
I totally forgot that it works in the express editions and I didn't realise that there was an open source developer license.

As for the multiple projects in 2008 express, I wasn't aware of any restrictions for multiple projects. I will have to download it and have a play.
