VS2008/.Net 3.5 SP1 still coming “Real Soon Now” (Update: “Service Pack 1 which will be available … after August 11, 2008.”)

system.data.objects dev guy - EF v1 (delivered by VS 2008/.net 3.5 SP1) is... almost... here. (And the .Net Rocks podcast announcing it is already here.)

“I suspect some of you are quite anxious for EF v1 to finally RTM.  I wish I could announce that it is out now.  Believe me, I really wish I could make that announcement.  ;-)  Sadly near the last minute there was a slight delay, and it just hasn't quite hit the web yet.  Soon.  Very soon. [GD: Emphasis added]

…”

sigh… My F5 key is wearing out I’m hitting it sooooo often waiting for the announcement… ;)

Update #1
From MSDN Subscriptions;

"SQL Server 2008 RTM Available for Download

English downloads are available now and additional languages will be added on a daily basis. Visual Studio 2008 users will need to download and install Service Pack 1 which will be available here after August 11, 2008." [GD: Emphasis added]

So looks like Monday/Tuesday'ish for VS2008 SP1! So I can give my F5 a rest for a bit… ;)
