.NET (dotGNU too) "ActiveState has announced the end of engineering support for Visual Perl, Visual Python, and Visual XSLT, effective immediately. The plug-ins will not be updated for Visual Studio 2005, and there will be no further maintenance on the Visual Studio 2003- and 2002-compatible versions. Due to the necessary inclusion of Visual Studio integration code in Visual Perl, Visual Python, and Visual XSLT, the plug-ins will not be open-sourced."

It is unfortunate that the Perl and Python plugins for Visual Studio will be discontinued. Looks like either no one knew about them and no one used them... they will probably not be missed for VD 2005.
