The Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office Second Edition Beta (called VSTO 2005 SE Beta for short of course--I mean what else would you call it?) is now available.  This lets you build applications for Microsoft Office 2007.

VSTO 2005 SE Beta includes the following functionality:

  • Managed code application-level add-ins for some of the most popular Office applications: Outlook, Excel, Word, PowerPoint, InfoPath and Visio.
  • Programming model and runtime support for key Office 2007 features including the ribbon, custom task panes, and Outlook form regions.
  • Design-time support for InfoPath 2007 form templates.
  • Compatibility and maintainability assurances. The VSTO 2005 SE Beta assures that the applications you’ve built on Office 2003 with VSTO 2005 continue to run with the 2007 Office system.
  • Support for more versions of Visual Studio 2005. VSTO 2005 SE Beta now runs in Visual Studio 2005 Professional (stand-alone), in addition to those versions already supported, including all of the MSDN subscriptions and Visual Studio Team System.
