Enhancements in C# Code Editor in VS 2008
Explicit compilation was often needed to Identify the semantic errors in C# code in Visual Studio 2005 and earlier versions. For instance if we declare and use an unknown data type in C# code, it required compilation for identification of the errors.
Now with the Visual Studio 2008 SP1 C# code editor instantly identifies and mark these errors with squiggles in red with out the need of explicit compilation.
This adds up value to the developer experience plus saves the building time.
