Microsoft has released a new Community Technology Preview of its Visual Basic 9.0 development environment.

The CTP of Visual Basic 9.0 features support for Microsoft’s LINQ (Language Integrated Query) extensions to the .Net framework and XML integration atop the XLinq API. The new release expands the XML integration in both the language and the IDE (integrated development environment), provides some editor features for the LINQ syntax, and enables DLinq for VB, according to the team building the tool.

The VB9 team listed new features in this CTP, including LINQ IntelliSense, DLinq support, editing support for XML literals and XML late binding.
