Everyone is, of course, on the lookout for any morsel of information about the next version of SharePoint and Visual Studio. I found a little SharePoint related news in some information about Visual Studio 2010 and thought I would just post it up here for anyone interested:
Publish to SharePoint
When we introduced ClickOnce deployment for Office solutions with Visual Studio 2008, you could easily publish solutions to a Web site, UNC share, or CD/DVD media. With VS 2010 you’ll be able to publish documents to SharePoint servers as well. This means that you no longer have to manually upload the document to SharePoint and maintain a network location from which the assemblies are installed when the document is opened. Simply select a SharePoint Document Library as an option in the publish wizard and the customized document will be added to the appropriate document library; the assemblies will be stored on the SharePoint server itself. This eliminates the requirement of having both a SharePoint server and a UNC share for deploying document solutions to SharePoint.
