Last week I played with VS2005 a little. My first overall impression is: sweet! Partial classes, nullable types, generics, master pages, new controls, great extra debug info… they all make our life a little easier.

Still, some things are rather funny. For instance: why can’t you see webpage-events any more, but do you have to write them yourself combined with auto event wireup? On one hand, I could imagine that the use of (too many) page events is not the right thing to do, and that’s the reason they made it a bit harder. On the other hand: everything is made easier in this VS release, so why not this?

Maybe I overlooked something, maybe there’s a good explanation. To be honest: I don’t care. I just wanna play with VS2005 .
