Have you noticed a preponderance of new blogs and blog entries from the Microsoft teams lately? Well, there's a reason...
During a release we get so "heads down" on the code that there is little time to talk about it. As the code solidifies and we move out of feature development and more into releasing the product, you'll see a lot of us pop up out of the ether and start talking about these new features and how you can use them. Here's a few links you might want to be aware of:
