I am pleased to announce that MSDN Magazine is doing a special issue this month on the new "async-await" feature that we are working on for the next versions of C# and Visual Basic. If this subject interests you, see my introductory article for beginners, Mads Torgersen's article on how it works behind the scenes and Stephen Toub's expert-level article on async performance. And of course, for a much longer introduction to the topic, see my long series from earlier this year. If you want to try it out yourself, download the CTP build from the async CTP main page.
Please do keep the great feedback coming! If you have comments, questions or constructive feedback on any aspect of the new feature, please post it to the async forum. Thanks!
