One of the most satisfying times I experience at Microsoft are immediately after a product release. And that day is today - the XNA team is proud to announce the availability of the Game Studio 3.0 CTP (Community Tech Preview)  that supports both Windows and Zune.  Being new to the XNA team, I obviously haven't contributed that much from this side of the fence, but it's great to see the NETCF work we did to support Zune finally make it out the door and into the hands of the game development community.  I also find it totally satisfying to see the proud smiles of team members in the halls in spite of the hard work and effort that went into the release.

Check out the announcement on the XNA Team Blog for more details of the launch.  I'm looking forward to seeing all of the cool, creative and quirky things that the community will produce.
