Tom Mertens writes about some of the cool new features in VB.Net in the next version of Visual Studio .Net (”Whidbey”). Lots of cool stuff in there. If you're interested in hearing all the latest cool news from the PDC about Whidbey and longhorn , the PDCBloggers RSS feed is ,at the time of writing this, the best resource I can find . It's actually regulated, so the posts themselves are not posted up there until they've been scanned for the “coolness” and “to the point” factors. Good job!
