Sorry it's been a while since I posted. The launch in Israel (and the user group meeting) went great. Lots of folks, lots of good conversations with people there. I just wanted to point out a few interesting things that went online in the last day or so:

Scott Guthrie posted an excellent tutorial titled Building a DAL using Strongly Typed TableAdapters and DataTables in VS 2005 and ASP.NET 2.0. It's the first part of a series on building ASP.NET applications. Check it out!

The VB team has released an update to their LINQ CTP. The January release adds support for DLinq and a few other things.

UPDATE: Amanda has posted a list of changes here.

Off to a meeting!
