Hi,

Just posting a link to a blog which shows some of the new features of VB in Visual Studio 11

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/lucian/archive/2012/03/29/talk-what-s-new-in-vb11-vs11-beta.aspx

I’ve also added this blog to the blog links to the right.

  • Win8 support
  • VBCore (=> new platform support for VB on Phone, XNA, MicroFramework, Kinect, Surface…)
  • Async
  • CallerMemberInfo
  • Iterators
  • View Call Hierarchy
  • Namespace Global
  • AnyCpu32bitPreferred allows EnC on x64 machines
  • Better codespit and pretty-listing
  • Better performance
  • Better error-reporting for lambdas, and (not yet in VS11beta but will be) no more 102-error-limit for vbc/msbuild
  • Fixed language corners in ForEach, ReturnArrayLiterals, OptionalParameterOverloads, GenericOverloadResolution

The video was recorded at DevConnections2012 in Vegas on 2012.03.26
