I see I haven't written anything here since February.  I've been very busy on two main fronts - lots of work on getting Team Architect ready for Beta 1 of Visual Studio Team System 2010, as well lots of work on making changes to the Components part of the forthcoming UML 2.3 specification.

Well, Beta 1 is out now.  We use Visual Studio to build itself (we call it "dogfooding", a typically Microsoftian neologism), and one of the things that sometimes slows us down is performance.  Rico Mariani always has interesting things to say about this, including now.

I'll write some details about the UML Component changes over the next few weeks.
