Visual Basic 2008 Programmer's Reference

Visual Basic 2008 Programmer's Reference is a language tutorial and a reference
guide to the upcoming 2008 release of Visual Basic. The tutorial provides
basic material suitable for beginners but also includes in-depth content for
more advanced developers.

The second part of the book is a reference that quickly allows programmers to
locate information for specific language features. The entries in these
appendices allow the reader to quickly review the details of important
programming, objects, properties, methods, and events.

Visual Basic 2008 Programmer's Reference will be fully revised (30%) to cover
the latest features of the new release, including:

* Changes to variable declaration and initialization
* XLinq support for XML data types; query comprehensions for using SQL-like
syntax to extract data from arrays and other data structures
* Extension methods for adding new features to existing classes
* Nested subroutines and functions
* Anonymous subroutines and functions (“lambda expressions”)
* Nullable types
* Relaxed delegates
* Dynamic interfaces
* Dynamic identifiers

The author expects about 100 new pages of new examples covering these features;
he will also extensively revise and retest all code to ensure compliance with
the 2008 release.
