One big differece with VS2003 and VS2005 is that web projects do not contain a project file. For those of you that do not store assemblies in vss and maybe even use a compile server, this may seem like a problem. It turns out that it is not. All project references that the web project previously stored are now stored in the solution file. It should be safe to say that a web site only exists in one solution, so there does not seem to be a problem. Update the compile server and run msbuild to generate a PrecompiledWeb folder of the web app. (another nice addition to VS2005)

In case you haven't found out yet, the .net compression library (System.io.compresison) is not the easiest to use. I didnt find it very intuitive at all. After a short time my limited patience was exausted and I went searching for an opensource solution. Easily, the best i found was SharpZipLib. Tar, Zip, GZip, compress, uncompress, source code, the works. A link to its download page is below. Please contribute to them if you use it. Long live the opensource movement.
