Soma posted on the new SharePoint and Visual Studio integration coming in the next release of Visual Studio.  http://blogs.msdn.com/somasegar/archive/2009/02/19/sharepoint-tools-support-in-visual-studio.aspx

This is something I have been working on with the developer division and it is very cool to see this finally being talked about!  Great work Reza, Mike and the rest of the team.

This is very exciting for SharePoint developers!
