Update on the CR for VS 2010 Release
November 5: The production launch is imminent. See Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 Launch Imminent for more details.
Updated November 3 2010 to be more specific about the production release.
Updated June 28 2010 to include the Beta 2 release.
Back in March when we first provided a schedule update, we expected the production release, along with runtimes to be available in late June.
Unfortunately we’ve encountered issues with the runtime size, and to address it properly we need to adjust the dates. ETA for the production release is now November 15 2010.
This was a hard decision for us, but the alternative was to release a runtime that was much too big to meet the market requirements. We know this is materially different from what was previously communicated and will force our customers and partners to adjust roadmaps and potentially their choice of reporting technologies. But it was clear if we continued on the path we were on, what we would ship would be poorly received due to unacceptably large runtime size.
The scope and features of the production release remain unchanged from what was previously communicated, described Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 Beta Update.
UPDATE: We can now confirm a Beta 2 release for early August 2010. This release will be feature complete, and include both 32-bit AND 64-bit runtimes. However the runtimes will be affected by the runtime size issue.
