Hello folks, 

Just some product family and product name housekeeping we want to keep you updated on.   Very soon, the "Visual Studio" product family will be renamed to "Developer Tools, Runtimes, and Redistributables".  The reason for the change is to more accurately reflect the various developer related products that will be serviced via Microsoft Update and WSUS.  

After this change, any previously released (and new) updates released for Visual Studio 2005, and Visual Studio 2008, will be available under those product categories, but now under the new product family name of Developer Tools, Runtimes, and Redistributables. 

Also under this new product family name, you will also see two new product categories.  Report Viewer 2005 and Report Viewer 2008.   These two new product categories will include updates for the Report Viewer 2005 and 2008 Redistributables.

Thank you!

The MU and WSUS team
