Please use the following Link on PartnerSource for further information regards the recent announcement at Convergence. You'll find the initial Press Release, Frequently Asked Questions document, and a presentation explaining the details.
For those of you interested in how this will affect the Snap-ins, please read through the FAQ document. Once the Code Gallery disappears on GotDotNet at the end of April, the Snap-ins will still be available for download from Codeplex, details of which you'll find in the FAQ.
