In February this year, we held a Visio Conference at which we started to reveal some of the features in the upcoming version of Visio. There are a lot of presentations up at the main conference site, but I did two presentations that were specific to the new version. There is a lot of exciting stuff demoed, but some of the best includes Visio Services (web viewing of data connected diagrams) and a lot of new Process Management (e.g. BPM, Quality, Lean, Compliance) functionality that I think will be really important.
