Checking Out SharePoint Templates/Tools in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1

For months now, ever since seeing some glimpses of the integrated SharePoint functionality in VS2010 I've been salivating at the prospect of a cohesive SharePoint development experience that it promises.

Check it out here on Channel 9.

Although the really interesting stuff is going to come with the release of the VS 2010 Tools for SharePoint, I was very excited to see what SharePoint surprises were tucked inside of the Visual Studio 2010 Beta that was released this week on MSDN.

When first choosing a SharePoint project template, nothing is available. This is because the default framework version selected is 4.0.

Switching to version 3.5 yields the SharePoint 2007 Sequential and State Machine Workflow templates.

Ultimately, attempting to create either of these projects failed. The folders were created in the file system, but there were no project, solution or workflow files to be seen.

I'm looking forward to the beta 2 / RC!
