Pre-Release of Microsoft Visual InterDev 6.0 Now Available

Microsoft Corp. this week announced the immediate availability of the Microsoft Visual InterDev 6.0 March pre-release.

This pre-release is a preview of the latest version of Microsoft's team-based Web development system that enables the rapid production of data-driven Web applications.

Visual InterDev 6.0's new integrated development environment makes it easier for developers to design, build, debug. and deploy cross-platform HTML applications that connect Web browsers with ODBC-compliant databases.

New features of Visual InterDev 6.0 include:

  • a WYSIWYG HTML editor that preserves source-code formatting
  • client- and server-side script debugging
  • improved database tools
  • advanced support for team-based development

This release also adds additional support for developers targeting the Windows Distributed interNet Applications (Windows DNA) architecture. Windows DNA utilizes reusable, middle-tier COM components that have been developed using other Visual Studio development system-based tools.

The free March pre-release of Microsoft Visual InterDev 6.0 is available for download from the Microsoft Visual InterDev Web site. It may also be purchased on CD-ROM for US$7.50 domestically, or US14.95 outside the United States.
