Adrian asked: I noticed that the MCP exam 70-301 will be retiring next year. Are there any plans for a new MCP exam on Microsoft Solutions Framework 4.0?

Jeff (my friend and dev cert person) answered: Thanks for asking! We are currently looking in to the development of an MSF 4.0 exam. It’s still really early in the planning process so there’s not a lot I can tell you about the potential timing of the exam. I wish there was more information I could share with you at this point.

No one asked me, but I'll add something anyway: we will keep you posted via the MCP newsletter, etc. if/when that solidifies.
