Now I notice there is Visual Studio 2010!

What are the enhancements to Visual C++ 2010 v/s 2008 ?

Do the publishers or the author Prentiss aim to provide any updates to the book through the website or a new revision?

I use VS 2010 a lot and the intellisense works tons better, not to mention when programming with C# is sets up the general coding for the Classes for you. Aside from wishing it was smaller program, it is a great program and takes a lot of the small work out of programming.

Be warned that you better have a heavy duty machine if you're going to use it for large C++ projects. It is reeealllly sluggish. There are tons of people complaining about it. Just Google. Personally, I found it unusable with my 2.3Ghz dual core. You can turn off the real time error parsing which seems to help a little, but even then it's pretty bad.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
