Tandy Trower, GM of the Microsoft Robotics team provides an update on what's new in the Robotics Developer Studio CTP (Channel 9 video).

There are a number of interesting updates, including the distributed services node editor - this gives you the ability to create your CCR/DSS based application, built out of services, and then define the physical location of the services on a distributed network and have the Visual Programming Language (VPL) push the application model out to the appropriate network nodes (nodes can be based on Windows XP/Embedded and Windows CE!).
