F# to ship as part of Visual Studio 2010

To be honest I don’t really like to blog about stuff that is already ‘out there’ on the web. There are however some topics that I personally think are important and don’t always get the attention they deserve. These topics mostly concentrate around parallel programming (see my blogroll in the sidebar). So for these topics I will make an exception.
Today Don Syme announced that F# will be released with Visual Studio 2010. I had expected this news to get out at the PDC last October, but for some reason we were kept in the dark a little longer.
I think this is a mayor step in bringing functional programming to mainstream software development.
