Crystal Reports in Visual Studio 2005
When Visual Studio 2005 was announced, I always assumed that Crystal Reports would no longer be integrated. When Reporting Services was introduced, I always assumed that it would replace Crystal Reports for report development.
But I was wrong! When Visual Studio 2005 will be shipped, they will still integrate and support Crystal Reports. According to this, Crystal Reports 10 will be shipped with VS2005. And it's already available in the beta's. For those of you that have already worked with Crystal Reports in previous versions of VS, check out the new features. And I'm glad, because I used CR in some of my .Net projects and it never let me down.
