As most of you are probably aware, Visual Studio 2012, the next version of our favorite IDE for the Windows platform and home to our Oxygene compiler, is coming soon, with the RTM date having been announced for August.

Of course we have been working tightly with our friends at Microsoft over the past half year or so to bring you support for the Beta and Release Candidate versions; the current shipping versions of both Oxygene and our .NET and Java products already work well with Visual Studio 2012 RC.

Today we are happy to announce that we will be among Microsofts list of “sim-ship” partners and will be shipping release products with official support for the final RTM release of Visual Studio 2012 within 30 days (probably a lot sooner) of Visual Studio 2012 RTM. (Our current goal is to ship full and final Visual Studio 2012 and Metro support in the “Fall 2012” releases at the end of August as part of Oxygene 5.2 and Embarcadero Prism XE3, and for Data Abstract, RemObjects SDK and Hydra in September.)

We’re very excited about Visual Studio 2012, as well as the new features we have coming from our side in the next round of releases — and so should you.

Stay tuned for more as we get closer to release.
