Visual Studio 11 Beta

Visual Studio and TFS 11 Beta Resources

Visual Studio 11TFS 11 beta and .NET Framework 4.5 beta are now available!

If you still didn’t get it, you can download it from here:

http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/11/en-us/downloads

Or for MSDN Subscribers directly from the MSDN Subscriber Download Page.

If you want to try it on a virtual machine and don’t want to install it by yourself, I recommend you to take  Visual Studio 11 Application Lifecycle Management Virtual Machine and Hands-on-Labs, that is available at the Brian Keller Blog:
