The new data binding builder in the WPF Designer and the Silverlight Designer
You’ll see the strong focus on line-of-business (LOB) applications in this release. In particular, binding WPF and Silverlight apps to enterprise data sets is supported in the WPF Designer: see Binding WPF Controls to Data in Visual Studio and Walkthrough: Creating a Data Binding by Using the WPF Designer for details. You’ll notice other improvements, including new LOB controls such as DataGrid, DatePicker, and Calendar.
