    • Add MSTest multi-targeting to .NET 3.5.

      MSTest should run on CLR 2 so tested projects that target CLR 2 can be tested on the CLR they'll ship on.

      • dbgeography better support

        Support of DBGeography is limited to EF. I tryed to use SQLDatasource and some of classic ASP.NET Webform Data controls and it seems that asp.Parameter have no fitting type. Also direct casting in inserting Event doesnt work. As I have seen also on other places there is *no* Support for the datatype which have been introduced with SQL 2008. As example sql2linq.
        The point is, to prevent a complete new implementation only for reason to add one db field

              • Make creating your own code snippet much simpler and easier.

                Creating a code snippet should be as simple as selecting a bit of code, clicking a button and answering a few questions.

                  • Dynamic bundles based on browser/client capabilities

                    More and more it's becoming a common practice to detect browser features and capabilities. There are even libraries and or tests used by many sites. Libraries such as Modernizr come with a slew of such tests.

                    It would be nice to issue the client a token/url for the scripts and css specific to that browser after doing feature detection.

                    This prevents ever subsequent page running the same test and doing the same conditional loading of scripts. Otherwise, another ugly alternative is to have a bunch of bundles for common browsers, but this seems more like doing browser sniffing rather than…

                        • Allow edit of LocalResources files without recompile

                          Would it be possible to edit values within App_LocalResources folders without triggering a recompile/recycle? I know GlobalResources can be strongly typed and need compiling, but LocalResources (text value translations for different cultures) surely don't?

                                  • client side templating with razor syntax so i can use the same partial views on server and client

                                    Use case:

                                    I want a part of my page to be updated via ajax. I also need this part of the page to be rendered on the server so that search engines and clients without js support can get the initial view.

                                    Currently i construct the template twice - once in Razor and once in handlebar, and i have to write custom javascript to hook it up.

                                    See for inspiration: https://github.com/jchadwick/RazorClientTemplates

                                    • ASP.NET MVC allow controller code update while server running

                                      In Webforms on Visual Studio 2010, you could update a code file even while the server was running - or you could stop the server, update code and the updates push through although the server is stopped.

                                      In MVC, you can only update a view but not a controller while the server is running. Maybe i dont understand the inner workings but it sure made quick development updates faster without having to 'start debugging'

                                      • Allow for use of dynamic variable names in .NET and VB specifically

                                        While, when building an SQL statement, within a Web Pages .vbhtml module, I can write -

                                        HWB_Series_Books_sqlCommand = "SELECT * FROM Titles WHERE Titles.Available_in_Series_" & Req_Series & " = 1"

                                        where Req_Series is a variable containing, in my case, a capital letter in the range A to P, thus creating a dynamic reference to one of 16 fields, all of whose names begin with the same first 20 letters.

                                        OR

                                        in the case of Form Controls I could write something like

                                        Dim LabelName = "Label 1"
                                        Me.Controls(LabelName).Text = "Publisher"

                                        thus being able to dynamically change the label whose text is…

                                        • Allow generating resources from code view

                                          Currently, you are only able to generate local resources while in either split or design view. As a simple fix, enable the menu item, and switch into split view while the wizard runs and then switch back.
