I was wondering. Because it seems like MS completely redid the language and I was hoping that it wouldn''t be interpreted anymore.

VB v1 to v4 only ''compile'' to p-code (interpreted)

VB 5 and 6 use p-code when in the IDE, but build native code when publishing exe''s (the exe''s still make excessive use of activex [.ocx] controls and .dll libraries for most functions)

I have no details on .net

I would assume all future versions of VB do what 5.0 and 6.0 did. It''s the best way. You''ll always want to run interpreted code in the IDE becaue it means basically no compile time, and excellent debugging.

Visual Basic.Net is compiled into MSIL bytecode just like any other .Net language.
The MSIL code is later compiled into native code by a JIT compiler.
