Then Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer made an announcement that Facebook will release an official Windows 8 application in the near future. Unfortunately no time frame was specified. Lastly Visual Studio 2013 Preview and .NET 4.5.1 Preview is now available. Visual Studio 2012 Update 3 is also now available.
