Microsoft will be partnering with the jQuery team and shipping jQuery with Visual Studio in the near future. The addition of web elements, jQuery and the project architecture makes for an interesting combo. Also, jQuery intellisense annotation support will be available as a free web-download. Barely a few weeks after the announcement, Microsoft during the PDC event, announced that Visual Studio 2008 now supports jQuery Intellisense through an additional file available from jQuery. This file can be downloaded from here. BTW, the PDC conference is sold out…but you can get on the wait list 😉
There are over 130 code snippets for jQuery included. You can view a listing of all of these snippets on the Visual Studio project wiki here.
