譯完了Stan Schultes先生的《Language Enhancements in Visual Basic 2005》系列文章，覺得總算做完了一件挺大的事情。在這裡涕淌要感謝所有來涕淌居閱讀這些文章並提出各種尖銳意見的網友們，謝謝你們！唉~~~無論多麼華麗的辭藻都無法表達涕淌對Visual Basic的愛意。2005年到來了，讓我們一起祝福她吧！
Explicit Array Bounds
You can now declare arrays using explicit array bounds to make the declaration clearer:
Dim a(10) As Integer 'old way
Dim b(0 To 10) As Integer 'new way
Array bounds in Visual Basic are still zero-based, so you'll get a compiler error if the array lower bounds value isn't 0.
The Visual Basic 2005 language gains several major features and many smaller enhancements that together provide significant increases in ease of use and developer productivity. The language has become more complete, and there is more parity with C# on major features like XML comments and operator overloading.
Coupled with a myriad of IDE enhancements, Visual Basic 2005 is poised to be the best version of Visual Basic ever released. Not only better from a language feature standpoint, but it's also a sheer joy to use. I'm disappointed only because I can't build production applications with the Visual Basic 2005 today. Give the Beta version a try, and I think you'll agree.
