Last week a few DCRs (design change requests) have been approved the Visual Web Developer area for implementation in VS 2005 Beta 2. You may like the fact that 80% are based on the user feedback posted at MSDN Product Feedback Center

I implemented an easy one last week: provide an option to switch off automatic addition of ID attribute. The option will be available in the Tools | Options | Text Editor | HTML | Miscellaneous page (a new one) and will affect Source view behavior as well as Design view behaviour for client-side elements. It will not affect Design view behaviour for ASP.NET controls since ID is required by the designer in order to work properly.

I am planning to blog about other changes as well when I see them come alive.
