Please add the following keywords to the VB-language:

Missing according to the official reference these are missing:

  • csbyte
  • cuint
  • culng
  • cushort
  • directcast
  • endif
  • getxmlnamespace
  • isnot
  • narrowing
  • of
  • operator
  • partial
  • sbyte
  • trycast
  • uinteger
  • ulong
  • ushort
  • using
  • widening

The missing unreserved keywords (also used by LINQ):

  • aggregate
  • binary
  • custom
  • distinct
  • equals
  • from
  • group by
  • group join
  • into
  • isfalse
  • istrue
  • join
  • key
  • off
  • order by
  • skip
  • skip while
  • strict
  • take
  • take while
  • text
  • where

I'd recommend the following as new list of keywords (merged old and new keywords, split, unique, sorted)
