Update to Monday's (5/16/2011) Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone 7 Release, v1.2.1. Think "the Visual Basic and Bug Fix update"

Wade Wegner - VB.NET and Bug Fixes for Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone 7 (v1.2.1)

"Today’s release of the Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone 7 (v1.2.1) has two important updates:

  • Support for Visual Basic
  • Bug fixes

Visual Basic

When we released on Monday we did not include updated project templates for Visual Basic – turns out that creating these project templates takes a long time, and we did not have enough cycles to complete it in time. However, we’ve had a few additional dates to finish this work, and we’re now providing Visual Basic support – this means can use this toolkit with Visual Basic and benefit from all the updates provided as part of the 1.2 release.


Bug Fixes

We also fixed a few bugs in this release. Many thanks to those of you who helped by reporting them so quickly!

Can they please shift resources away from VB and EOL it already. We already have a perfectly good strongly typed .Net language and it is called C#. Spend those resources on the platform or making one of the DLR languages a first class citizen.
