"Orcas" is the code name for the next version of Microsoft Visual Studio - "the next generation development tool for Windows Vista, the 2007 Office System, and the Web" as it says here.
What's planned for "Orcas"?
- VSTS Improvements in load & unit testing such as unit test for devices (as mentioned here)
- Version Control and Work Item Tracking Performance & Scalability Improvements
- Orcas Version Control Performance Improvements
- A new look for Annotate
