Subject Re: Strategy for Harmony to work with Visual Studio 2005?
Date Thu, 06 Jul 2006 10:35:40 GMT
Ok, then I will get back to VC7 at the moment. :-)  Let's wait till
its acceptance by the community.

Actually I don't see them as new APIs; instead, I view them as
enforced good coding conventions that help to achieve better security,
e.g., always check the buffer size in debug mode. (Personally I like
the changes immediately when I met them. My only question was why we
didn't do that earlier. :-)

Thanks,
xiaofeng
