A group blog from members of the VB team
I just posted a Channel 9 interview with Avner Aharoni, a Program Manager on the Visual Basic Team, as he dives into LINQ to XML and XML Literals in Visual Basic 9 and explains namespace bubbling and the performance gains you may see using XML Literals. This is a good interview to pay attention to if you are struggling with how XML namespaces work in Visual Basic. Get started with LINQ to XML in Visual Basic with these How-to Videos.

Can you shed some light on whether or not the .NET XML methods load and parse the entire file at the same time? We need a record at a time processing of xml files since we get them in the 50+ megabyte range on a daily basis. For business reasons, each file comes from a single customer and each file contains several thousand data records to be treated as a single large transaction from that customer.
