We’re happy to announce the release of the BlackBerry Native Plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio (version 3.0 Gold).

There are many benefits to open-source code and one of them is contributions from the community.  We’re very happy that Paweł Hofman has made many improvements which are  included in this latest release.  We’ll have a feature blog on Paweł later this week.
