It's been a while since we posted on the upcoming XNA Game Studio 2.0 release. The good news is that there will be a XNA Game Studio 2.0 beta available for you to download very soon!

This beta is considered "feature complete." This means that while we still have some issues to address, all of the features that will be in the release are included as part of the beta. However like all our previous betas, the beta is for the Windows-based computer functionality only and you will not be able to deploy games to the Xbox 360 system.

Unfortunately, there were a few things that didn't make it into this release. The most prominent being that you cannot host XNA applications in Windows Forms. All the other major features that we talked about earlier this year will be available!

Over the next few weeks, we'll be blogging about some of the new features in XNA Game Studio 2.0 and what's been changed. This should give you a good idea of what to expect in the release.

Microsoft developer tools have always been the best. I mean, I'd even go as far as saying nothing comes close, atleast to Visual C. I would go nuts if I didn't have my intellisense. I've always liked the APIs (except MFC, which is an API, on top of an API). Too bad I'm a cheap ass and won't buy a decent DX video card to try xna.
