VB 2005 Beta 1 (as well as the beta of those “other” languages) is now available. Not only that, but VB Express, a lightweight version of the product is also available (and there’s an Express weblog). The cool, new MSDN Product Feedback Center is on-line now, ready to take your suggestions and bugs. And, finally Channel 9 is running a contest for applications written in VB express. Check it all out!
