I've been up in Redmond all week filming videos of the VB team and having a lot of productive back-to-back meetings :-). We're going to start releasing these videos on Channel9 once the editing is completed and I think you're going to really enjoy them. The team is great and their personalities really come through. They are showing us their favorite Visual Basic 9 and Visual Studio 2008 features and there are so many of them! So stay tuned into Channel9 or watch for new videos showing up on the Visual Basic Developer Center home page (the Silverlight control in the center of the screen) and here on this page as well.
BTW, today is also the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. Up here, Seattle get's 17.5 hours of daylight today! Welcome Summer! YAY!
I meant Visual Studio 2008 with Visual Basic 9. I corrected the post, sorry for the confusion.
While you're in Redmond, how about checking into the status of collection initializers in VB 9.0? They appear to have been abandoned or at least gone into hiding.
See http://oakleafblog.blogspot.com/2007/06/will-visual-basic-90-have-collection.html for details.
Thanks in advance,
