It appears that Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 has just been released. This is important for a few reasons:

I am pleasantly surprised to see that it is already available on Microsoft DreamSpark, meaning that if you're a student, then you can get a free legal copy of Visual Studio 2010 Professional Edition. If you're not a student, then you can of course get Visual Studio 2010 Express Edition for free, but like all Express Editions of Visual Studio, you're unable to do things like compile native 64-bit C++ applications. Now I just have to see if CMake supports 2010, and then make sure that the projects I'm working on all compile nicely on it.
