Finally it is official. Web Application Projects (WAP) for Visual Studio 2005 is available as a separate download. Later Web Application Projects will be included in Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1. Great thing - very recommended. I think that without Web Application Projects Visual Studio 2005 looks raw and incomplete in terms of web development.
This release of Web Application Projects even supports "Edit and Continue". Scott has more details regarding "Edit and Continue" in Web Application Projects:
"One feature we added into this final release of the VS 2005 Web Application Project option is edit and continue support for both VB and C# web applications. Edit and Continue allows developers to modify code while running and debugging an application without having to stop, recompile and re-launch it. This is true for both code contained within the web project itself as well as for class library projects that the web project references. This enables a much more dynamic coding experience."
