Visual studio 2005 beta 2 has just been released:

Improves a bunch of stuff with .net and fixes a horde of bugs.  Here are couple I know about that have been fixed.  In RichTextBox the VScroll and HScroll events are now fired when you click on the thumb bar and drag the scroll bar up and down.  This did not use to be the case in prior versions, although I have a work around for this included in my blog earlier.

I am pretty happy about the new Visual Studio 2005 and .net framework version 2 in general.  It is a great improvement over .net 1.1, generics especially are a wonderful thing.
