Thank you ElektroStudio for helping spread the VB love

I've built more than a few Visual Studio extensions.

Most of them only work with C# code.

I'd like to support VB.Net in more of them, but other priorities get in the way.

Const Visualizer is one that hasn't had the love it could have. It's really useful in some instances, but I haven't found the time to address the things about it that niggle at me when I use it.

Given that I haven't found the time to add the C# related fixes I want, you'll not be surprised to hear that VB support wasn't high on my priority list.

So, when I was asked about adding VB support, I had to acknowledge that it was only going to happen if someone else contributed it. Thankfully, ElektroStudios did just that, and now version 2 is in the marketplace with C# & VB.Net support.

I know that many people still use VB every day and that some of you even look to me for advice and tools on building with it. I wish I had more time to focus on supporting it, but maybe if more people contribute some of the work, we can build better tools for VB development together.

Whatever happens, thank you, Elektro, for your contribution.
