Software Update: Visual Studio 2005 Performance Fix

Ah. This is one of the nicest things Microsoft could have done! If you used Visual C++ 2005 (or any earlier version of it) with large solutions and projects - then you definitely know, that sometimes IntelliSense would often slow down things. Sometimes the slow down would be so big, that you'd have to turn off IntelliSense to be able to work on your project.

I haven't tested this fix yet, but I think it's going to be good! :)
And here are the links:
Microsoft's knowledge base article about the issue,
The actual fix download page,
A very nice VC++ Team Blog article giving more detailed explanation of the changes.

Note, that you will have to sign in to your passport account before you get access to the download page.

And once again - thank you Microsoft! :)
