Welcome to the fortieth issue of Community Convergence. This week we have two new releases of note:
- We have created a new regular post called Future Focus that is designed to keep the community aware of the C# Team's long term plans for the language. The first Future Focus post covers a C# Language feature tentatively called Dynamic Lookup that is currently scheduled to be part of the next version of Visual Studio.
- Code Gallery, a new site for sharing sample code, is now live. Upload your own samples, find samples from other community members, or find samples written by developers at Microsoft.
