Strangely coinciding with MIX o8 (not really :-)) my team has made a bunch of new releases available to the public: these are all betas or CTPs so obviously don't reelect final quality (you can still do a whole bunch with this stuff though!). This is a remarkable about of work which (as the new boy) I've not really been involved in so far. That will change as we have a ton of other stuff ready to make it out the the developer audience VERY soon! I also fancy putting a sscreencast together on some of this stuff a la Hanselman (though the unsung hero is Phil Haack who pulled this release together over the past few weeks, overcoming illness to do so!)
