VB.Net 2005 - Two Questions

P: n/a
1) Will VB.Net 2005 be completely backward compatible with applications
written in VB.Net 2003?

2) Any chance VB.Net 2005 implement the old "Auto Redraw" which I sorely miss?

> 1) Will VB.Net 2005 be completely backward compatible with applications
written in VB.Net 2003? In general, yes. It will be more like the upgrade from VS2002 to VS2003
(although a lot more has changed from VS2003 to VS2005 than what changed
from VS2002 to VS2005). Surely some tweaking will be needed to make sure
everything is OK in VS2005 since a lot of properties, methods, etc and even
classes have been marked obsolete in VS2005 that were there in
VS2002/VS2003. You can take a look at this site to verify whether something
you are using in your projects has been marked obsolete in VS2005 (as of
Beta 1):

miss?

Do you mean the AutoRedraw property on various graphic objects? In that
case, no. Here's what MS says why:
