When will VB.NET support improve in ReSharper?

I have reported a lot of bugs in YouTrack that I found in VB.NET. Very few of them have been fixed (I understand you are busy). I hate to go on a rant but almost everything I try with ReSharper and VB.NET doesn't work, ReSharper 4.x used to be great with C#. I had very minor problems that I could live with. Now that I am doing a lot of VB.NET development ReSharper is really falling WAY below my expectations as I am not able to do almost anything and I bought a few licenses for my team. Everyone on the team is complaining about it either slowing down their machine or they try to use features and they don't work. I tried to report as many issues that I saw in YouTrack but am disappointed almost none are getting addressed. The features I use almost all the time are Refactor->Extract Method and Auto-Correct (Alt-Enter) but I am finding these work maybe 30% of the time. Just wanted to find out when the ReSharper team will focus on VB.NET functionality?

Hello Denis,

We're working hard on improving VB.NET support in ReSharper. Could you please
elaborate more on the issues that you've logged to YouTrack and that were
not addressed? Thank you!

My username on YouTrack is "sparky2708". The issues I reported span a broad range of problems I am having with VB.NET (some date as far back as 8 months). You will notice that very few of them are closed.
