C# 5.0 - not quite there yet!
in and between operators if (x in (1, 2, 3)) if (x in 1:5) if (x between(1,5)) · Like Python - Without having to use extension methods Data Structure Improvements · Make BCL collections to be generic: all this ControlCollection, XmlAttributeCollection, SqlErrorCollection, StringCollection becomes Collection<Control>, Collection<XmlAttribute> and Collection<SqlError> · Tuple Packing and Unpacking - Like python: public Tuple<string, int, double> ReturnMyTuple() { return "Hello ......
