JNBridge announced a new edition of its JNBridgePro interoperability tool suite with support for Visual Studio 2010 and Microsoft .NET Framework 4. JNBridgePro connects Java and .NET Framework-based components and applications together using plug-ins for Eclipse and Visual Studio. It will ship on April 26.

“.NET Framework 4 has a brand new set of core assemblies,” said Wayne Citrin, CTO of JNBridge. “Users need to be able to create interoperability projects that are targeted toward a specific version of the .NET Framework…JNBridgePro 5.1 enables users to target the specific .NET Framework version they need.”

Business intelligence development software maker Syncfusion released Syncfusion Essential Studio 2010 Volume 2, an update that features full support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4. It integrates with Visual Studio’s designer surface and can create Web applications using Silverlight 4 and ASP.NET MVC 2.0.
