There are a lot of interesting features we've added to almost every component for this release:
As you can see the extensibility is a big theme now, and in my following posts I will be showing how to extend both IIS Reports as well as DBManager.
Today we are releasing a very cool feature that lots of customers have really been asking for, URL Rewrite Module is now available for download at:
Download the x86 CTP version for IIS 7.0: http://www.iis.net/downloads/default.aspx?tabid=34&g=6&i=1691
Download the x64 CTP version for IIS 7.0: http://www.iis.net/downloads/default.aspx?tabid=34&g=6&i=1692
I'm pretty happy about this release not only because its a great feature that many of us have been waiting for, but also because I personally got to work quite a bit on it, helping with the Configuration Design, my team (Gurpreet Singh) built the UI, my good friend Daniel built the runtime module and I actually got to write some code and built the apache mod_rewrite translation feature.
To learn more about it and see all the cool documentation and walkthroughs:

Gurpreet Singh who is a developer in my team published last week a couple of articles on how to extend IIS Manager 7:
1) The first one talks about how to write an IIS Manager extension in general and walks you through the process using Visual Studio: http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/441/understanding-ui-extension-authoring/
2) The second one shows how to extend the IIS Reports feature in Admin Pack to add your own report to it and shows this using Log Parser: http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/464/walkthrough-for-creating-an-iis-report/
