As a professional VBA developer, I have felt left in the cold by your team for many years. Every couple of years there is a new Office release, and the biggest changes include UI improvements to Excel, new functionalities like XLOOKUP, etc, but improvements to the VBA IDE are next to nothing.
Some main shortcomings of the current VBA language, which have been in there for many decades already and which are considered to be basic features in any OOP language:
I could go on, but my question is this: Why do you choose to focus on UI spreadsheet improvements, whereas clearly the VBA IDE deserves structural improvements? Do you ever intend to make such structural changes to the VBA IDE in the future? If not, why not?

I am aware of other languages out there having better features. We are actually in the process of moving all our tools from VBA to python. But there is a lot of legacy code which needs maintenance for at least several years to come.
