A very helpful new feature included in Visual Basic 10 (more features to be found here), is that the compiler has been changed in the way that it handles line termination no longer needing an underscore. Beth Massi interviewed Tyler Whitney, with the VB compiler team, to find out more about it. Click here to see the interview.
As a comic relief, they created a support website for the unemployeed underscores that are no longer needed.
As someone that has been coding between two languages (VB.NET and C#) for the last several years these changes that make the languages more similar definitely make my brain work less. Now if we could only get them to accept brackets for arrays, now that would be something!
