Today, Microsoft revealed details about the upcoming release of Visual Studio 2005, complete with price information and target release windows.

According to Microsoft's information, Visual Studio is expected to be available in the second half of 2005. This is in fact, later than early speculations; some of which saw the software becoming available at the end of 2004.

"With Visual Studio 2005 Team System, Microsoft introduces features and technologies to support application development through all phases of the software life cycle, from development to deployment," said S. Somasegar, corporate vice president of the Developer Division at Microsoft. "In addition, more accessible tools pricing for small businesses and simplification of MSDN subscription levels for our enterprise customers will enable Microsoft to deliver a complete development platform to satisfy developers at all levels."

New subscription and renewal estimated retail pricing for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional and Standard editions follow:

-Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition: $799 (upgrade: $549)

-Visual Studio 2005 Tools for the Microsoft Office System: $799 (upgrade: $549)

-Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition: $299 (upgrade: $199)

-Visual Studio 2005 Express editions will be $49

Also included were details concerning Visual Studio's Team System, which was designed to "[expand] the definition and audience reach of the Visual Studio product line beyond developers to development teams, adding new tools for project managers, software testers, infrastructure and software architects, and IT business decision-makers."

"The trend to align IT and the line of business clearly mandates that the IT organization provide value throughout the entire application life cycle," said Theresa Lanowitz, research director at Gartner Inc. "Requirements for products in this market and category have shifted away from individual point products and have instead begun to focus on strategic planning throughout the life cycle. Use of these more strategic products is expected to be one component of building an application quality ecosystem that also consists of people and process."
