    When working on sandboxed solutions, Visual Studio displays a compiler error if we attempt to use farm-only API calls

  • Support for JavaScript Debugging and IntelliSense for JavaScript

    We can now debug JavaScript in SharePoint projects, and IntelliSense is provided when coding JavaScript in SharePoint projects. URL resolution for JavaScript is enabled for visual web parts in sandboxed solutions

  • Streamlined SharePoint Project Templates

    The SharePoint project templates and project item templates have changed. Some SharePoint project templates from the previous version of Visual Studio were moved into project item templates.
