Important Note on Upgrading CollabNet Desktop Visual Studio Edition (CDVSE):

If you have CDVSE 1.0 installed on your system, you need to uninstall CDVSE manually (Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs). This step is automated in >=CDVSE 1.1. The installer will uninstall the existing CDVSE and install the upgraded version.

Note on Development Builds:

These are generally fairly stable and we use them internally. They are a good way to see the features we are working on and get our hands on the latest features right now. That said, they are development builds, which means there will be things that do not work right, or we decide to remove or heavily modify. If you are going to use development builds, it is probably a good idea to also participate on the discussion forum.
