Vijay has started blogging. Note that he’s had a blog for a while now (Jan 2004) but he’s now actually adding entries. Head over to his blog and read up on some of his great work and background testing Whidbey’s C# Edit-N-Continue feature. Good stuff.

Warning CS1668: Invalid search path…

We once again saw a few reports of folks running into the CS1668 warning every time they used the C# compiler when we released Beta 2.
