I caught up with Amanda Silver to discuss new for 2008 features like LINQ, XML Literals, using LINQ to target LINQ for .NET Framework 2.0. Amanda shares her thoughts on the future of dynamic typing in Visual Basic, runtime changes in edit-and-continue,  how to make changes in pseudo-run mode, the challenges in adding IntelliSense for dynamic typing, and improving native/Pinvoke calls for .NET developers. Amanda also reveals her toughest feature cut that the team had to make for the VB 2008 release.
