Coming soon: VBx!

Several bloggers and news articles on new version of Visual Basic that was referred to (but not announced) at MIX07 conference this week.

From Panopticon blog: What the heck is "VBx"?
...though, I can now take a bit of the wraps off. "VBx" is our current (subject to change) codename for the next major version of Visual Basic. (The "x" is supposed to signify the Roman numeral X, or 10, since the next major version of Visual Basic is going to be 10.0.

From The Visual Basic Team Blog:
What do the announcements at Mix mean for the Visual Basic developer?
VB on Silverlight – In short, this means that you can now use Visual Basic as the code-behind for whiz-bang rich interactive applications that run on Windows or the Mac and can run in IE, Firefox, and Safari.
