Following Windows 8 is released its Release Preview, Visual Studio 11 is also having some changes since 1st June 2012. Now Visual Studio 11 is confirmed to be named Visual Studio 2012, and also it is now turning from Beta to RC. This means that it is going to be RTM. in my personal thinking, it might be released in the same date as Windows 8. So as a developer, you really need to catch up some changes on HTML 5 supporting in Visual Studio 2012, and also the Metro Development for Windows 8.
