Hi guys,

I love Visual Basic but the Mono Basic Compiler doesn't have received updates a few months ago, thus I can not use .NET 4.5 on Linux stably such as Mono C# Compiler does, any idea about possible updates? Thanks in advance.

I'd love see Xamarin.Android + Visual Basic <3

Exactly what are you missing, newer features in the vb language (linq for instance), or are there bugs in the existing compiler?

The existing compiler is feature-complete with VB 8 (Visual Studio 2005), and at the moment we don't have any plans/time to implement newer VB versions.

Actually this is fixed, we're shipping Roslyn's vbc now.
