The major change between 2.0 and 3.0 was the addition of the Jet Engine, the
data control, the capability of "binding" controls to data, and coding syntax
to support database access via the Jet Engine.

As before, the Pro edition includes more controls (including a control to
interface with a subset of Crystal Reports which is included as well), some
additional documentation (both online and printed), and additional utilities
such as the Help Compiler, the Setup Wizard. Most of the extra controls were
written by third parties. Some of them were "dumbed down" for bundling with
VB, and in almost all cases, the third parties are now selling newer versions.

Basically, the Pro edition is a bundle of some things that you might otherwise
buy better versions of from third parties. It's a fairly good value if you're
willing to settle for an old, rather limited report writer, older stripped
down controls, and a primitive help authoring tool. Many companies go ahead
and buy the Pro edition even if they are planning on substituting third party
tools for the Pro extras, just so they have the "baseline" package, which
makes it convenient for running acquired or sample code.
