What's new in Whidbey for VC++ IDE

Peter Huene has compiled a list of new features in Whidbey related to C++.

The two features I like most are:

The first is great, because we have many multi-processor machines here at my company.

The second is even better. You know, we have developed our own programming language named E, which is a derivate of C. However, instead of classes we have states, i.e. each object is a state-machine. Having said that, in all our E-projects we have custom build steps  to call our compiler. With the new Custom Build Rules, we are now able to configure only once how to handle the *.e files.
