Today is a very exciting day because we are releasing the Office 2010 Technical Preview which is our first public debut of OneNote 2010 (and all of Office). Here are some details, I love thinking in lists so you get a list:
Enough about logistics, what’s new in OneNote 2010? We have a ton of new features that I am super excited to talk about and over the next few weeks & months we will post stuff on our blogs (mine, John’s, Mike’s, etc). In due course we will tell you about all of the new features, but here is a quick teaser:
Exciting times and now we can finally have a dialog with you all about these new features!
Can I "Print to OneNote" on a 64-bit machine?
Yes we fixed this in OneNote 2010

You know what I always thought OneNote would benefit from? A plugin system. Something where I could write addons or Macros to extend the functionality of OneNote. But alas its just pipe dream.
As a tech director at a 1:1 Tablet PC school, I am a huge advocate for OneNote. It is amazing, and my mouth is watering with all the 2010 news. Do you know if decisions on the Tech Preview for Home & Students were sent yesterday, i.e :-( because I was not a lucky recipient.
Hoping to launch Office 2010 with Win 7 in the summer of 2010 with all our Faculty and Students, so sneak peeks will help us prepare.
Thanks for all your continued great work.
I am confused about when the web app is being launched, and whether you need 2010 or 2007 to sync with it.
I hope that tag compatability is maintained when you upgrade to 2010 (lets face it the last release ruined many people's tags even though I pointed this out during the beta testing)
I also hope the improved syncing now syncs the tag list between machines.
@scoobie: In general what is the file compatability for New ON 2010 Notebooks and ON 2007. Can 2007 open 2010 files.
@Greg, if you're wishing for COM addin support, I'd like that too. Btw you can write addins just fine using VSTO 2005 SE or VSTO 3.0 (Visual Studio 2008).
For those of you who want to sign up for the tech preview, there may still be some spots available. Go here to sign up: http://connect.microsoft.com/office/InvitationUse.aspx?ProgramID=3304&InvitationID=C2R-HKRJ-CMDH
Looks like I'm status:pending for the tech preview. I was on vacation when the email came out to do the quick survey, and it seems to have been taken down.
Is it now closed?
i use the pen as a mouse but then type. the input always defaults back to pen, so next time i try to move the cursor it make a pen mark instead. in 2007 the 'A' for text held. what to do?
