It's like PowerToys for language geeks!

There are times that a beta comes out that I can really get behind.

Like earlier today while I toiled away on my slides for that WEX presentation and then later helped my favorite pirate and strange Josh/Gretchen/Michael triangle member Gretchen Ledgard do some random gratis pimping on JobsBlog, and then a bunch of other meetings, I never got to look at email during the day....

But when I finally did get to look at email, and noticed that early while I was doing those last-minute slide revisions, Mike Hedley had pointed me at the Visual Studio International Pack 1.0 Beta1 release, by the Developer International group, which is available in five languages! Downloads here:

The overview of the project:

The Visual Studio International Pack contains a set of class libraries designed for .NET developers to create world-ready applications. The Visual Studio International Pack 1.0 release provides the following seven components to enhance the globalization features provided by .NET Framework.

I will probably be talking more about these features as I dig in here. But in any case this is definitely a beta I can get behind. :-)

And now I am on my way out the door, but I'll check later for comments and such....
