Greetings from within Microsoft!  I'm excited to let you know that we've just released the beta for Acrylic, an application for professional graphic designers.  Please go take a look, download, and send in your feedback! (http://www.microsoft.com/expression)

(To see some art generated with the application, download and install.  You can also see some examples by following the link to previous versions.)

I've been working hard trying to get automated testing running for this application and you can expect to see some posts from me regarding the issues I've faced trying to automate an unmanaged application with VS 2005 (Whidbey).   I'll also be posting information about the Acrylic application itself.  If there are any specific topics feel free to suggest them.
