VS.NET 2003 to 2005
I recently started playing with VS.NET 2005 Beta 2, mostly because I wanted to see the Class Designer in action. The first, pleasant surprise was that it co-exists peacefully with VS.NET 2003. I was afraid i might hose my daily dev environment with this experiment, but it seems to be ok. Haven't tried ASP.NET yet, since the switch, but i hear that IIS is the one bone of contention with peaceful co-existence.
But enough about the pleasantries. Converting some work projects, i came across a C# language change that I'm not sure is a change or a fix for a bug. Either way it makes me change my code...
This works in C# 1.0, but in C# 2.0 i get Cannot access protected member 'ConsoleTester.Base.Base()' via a qualifier of type 'ConsoleTester.Base'; the qualifier must be of type 'ConsoleTester.Child' (or derived from it). So is this a change in the spec, a bug in 1.0 or a bug in 2.0?
