Differences between VB.NET Pro 2002 and VB.NET Pro 2003

What are the main differences between Visual Basic .NET Pro 2002 and Visual Basic .NET Pro 2003? Is it possible to just upgrade from Visual Basic .NET Pro 2002 to Visual Basic .NET Pro 2003 without having the obligation to upgrade the full Visual Studio .NET?
The feature differences are relatively minor, but the important differences are that there are lots of bug fixes and performance improvements between the two versions. The good news is that it is trivial to upgrade to Visual Basic .NET Pro 2003. Keep in mind that Microsoft changed the project format between the two versions so once you convert a project to 2003, you can't open it again in previous versions.
