For those of you who were at TechEd and missed my talk, you can see the recording at: http://msteched.com/viewrecordedsession.aspx?code=DEV326 Unfortunately, this is limited to TechEd attendees only as you need to login to that site.
I have attached the slides and the sample from the session -- look for future postings that discuss each of the features covered in the talk.
Note: You may have to update the references to the Cider assemblies that are installed as part Visual Studio 2008. Microsoft.Windows.Design.dll, Microsoft.Windows.Design.Extensibility.dll, and Microsoft.Windows.Design.Interaction.dll.
