What's New in Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Beta
Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Beta includes the following improvements in diagnostics:
The debugger now supports IIS Express, IntelliTrace now supports 64-bit debugging, IntelliTrace now supports Workflow and projects that use Web Parts controls. By default, IntelliTrace no longer saves IntelliTrace log files (.iTrace files) after you close Visual Studio. You can change the default behavior to enable IntelliTrace to save all log files, or you can manually save IntelliTrace log files, as described in the following procedures.
To change the default IntelliTrace log file behavior
I like updates in software because that means that your program is more reliable and more featurable. You can always rollback this changes or remove service pack if you want, but it is better to have up-to-date software all the time. The SP1 Beta comes with few bug fixes and also provides new features. Don't forget to shutting down or closing you current Visual Studio 2010 projects when installation begins.
