Whats new in Windows Forms 2.0

“Microsoft really hit a sweet spot with the .NET Framework 1.0. Not only did .NET signify a fundamental shift in the way developers build and distribute Windows®-based applications, but it also created a great technological platform for scaling features upwards and outwards. Visual Studio® 2005 is a very solid case in point and does both exceptionally well with a smorgasbord of new and improved functionality. The scope of these changes most definitely covers the Windows Forms subset of the Microsoft® .NET Framework, starting with the core System.Windows.Forms and reaching out across a wide variety of supporting technologies, both old and new alike, including ADO.NET, ObjectSpaces, and ClickOnce deployment.
Productivity improvements are found in every nook and cranny of Visual Studio 2005. They include IDE enhancements, improved control and data designers, and code generation. Code junkies may be disheartened by how much less code needs to be written for a variety of scenarios, while the rest of us will have more time for Battlestar Galactica reruns.”
