Hi All,

Having C++/CLI as a language in .NET is essential for me. I have a lot of code that needs to run in realtime, DirectX and video stuff. C# would not be deterministic enough for me. In addition, the InterOp between a C# GUI and the realtime C++/CLI stuff is terrific.

Now that I have C++/CLI added to my box of tools, how do I go about finding out how C++/CLI handles the new features possible with .NET 3.5 in Visual Studio 2008. I guess a new chapter for this book is needed.

More specifically, I'm thinking of what the C++/CLI team at Microsoft may have added to the language in VS 2008 in line with the C# 3.0 stuff, such as Lambda expressions, etc.

Any comments?
