Hi John,

The Circus is coming to Town. And it's bringing good old VB-style
edit-and-continue to an IDE near you.

We're talking about the next version here, of course. ;-)

Regards,
Fergus

I don't know. I have checked it.

No, except that you won't get "edit and continue" behavior. This will
be re-introduced in Whidbey (2004).

Which, BTW, is available now in Alpha form. Go to the MSDN subscriptions
download and there is a link that tells how to order it from MS!!

There's no link, really (except to Miscrosoft Subscriber downloads). There
it tells you to call MS support and ask for it. They ask for your
subscriber id and verification information. Sadly, it take 3 - 4 weeks to
arrive.

As has been posted before, there is no problem in checking it, as long as
you do realize that there's no edit and continue (for now :) ) - if you
continue to debug, the code getting executed is the old one, for example if
you added new lines, the lines reported by the debugger won't be
sincronized with the lines in the code.

I honestly don't know, although I wouldn't think so - VB is probably the
only team who will be adding this feature in whidbey
