What's New in Visual Studio .NET 1.1? : Page 5

Visual Studio .NET provides a new set of features designed to improve and enhance the development experience. Most of these changes have to do with user ergonomics and are typical of a minor release of a Visual Studio product. Only a few of the changes are related to the underlying platform.

Tools Options
The Options under the Tools menu contain many new features and changes. Here is a list of the most important of these changes.
Build events let you specify command lines instructions to execute in conjunction with the build process.
Projects and Solutions Environment. The new checkbox, "Track Active Items in Solution Explorer" enables the Server Explorer to automatically track the item you are working with (see Figure 11). The Build and Run Options control what happens when you build and run your projects. The old option of saving all documents when a new build is launched is now split into two options: You can choose to save all changes to all documents and solution files (the default), or choose to save changes to open documents only. In addition, you can explicitly instruct Visual Studio .NET 1.1 to build only the active project or all projects whenever you build or start (by pressing F5) your project.
