The UK-based team have announced the launch of http://www.VisualStudiowire.NET

the free news and announcement service for all things Visual Studio - .NET, C#, ASP.NET, COM+ etc.

"This is the site for all Visual Studio announcements in the run-up to the next VS release - news, articles, books, events, masterclasses, websites, etc...even rumours!", said the iDR team
this week in the UK. "It's free to add an announcement, and VS.NET news can be delivered via email straight to your desktop as it happens." is aimed at, and run by, professional developers for those using predominantly Microsoft technologies, languages and operating systems. VisualStudiowire.NET is the first launch this quarter in a series of websites for professional developers using proprietary solutions developed in-house by the independent team.

This indie community has attracted attention for exercising the next generation of developments from Microsoft in producing this and all the other iDR sites. (iDR were the first to set up an online SOAP server). A fast-growing community are supported
through 20 or 30 well-known discussion groups such as COMdevelopers and dev-xml.

"VisualStudioWire.NET will use a web service to provide a newsfeed to sites interested in syndicated VS content and news, and to prove the web services model", said Dr Richard Grimes,
the C++, COM and C# guru, buttonholed at VSLive in San Francisco recently.

The next developments, coming soon from iDR, are 3 niche content sites, a .NET framework for Phase 2 of the site, further MS wire sites (the easily customisable template is
available to all interested parties), and most excitingly free .NET server space for European developers. Advertisers, sponsors and the community from global corporations continue to support the team in their initiatives.
