Somasegar has announced that his team has released to manufacturing Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5.

"We hope that Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 enables you as an individual or as a team to build great applications. Whether you are a professional developer or a software enthusiast, are building applications for the client, server, web, or devices we hope you have fun with these products as your software is our passion."

The entire family of Visual Studio products (from the Express Editions to the Professional version to Visual Studio Team Suite) and .NET Framework 3.5 are available for immediate download here.

For those of you interested in VSX, Aaron Marten published an update on his blog: "As a reminder, the August 2007 CTP of the Visual Studio 2008 SDK is not compatible with the release version of Visual Studio 2008.". But he thinks they have the final build, and have a plan on posting it to the web later this week after some final testing.
