There are a number of things coming out for ASP.NET 2.0 that are very exciting.
- Major Update to Atlas - They are adding a ton of features.
- Updated Migration Utility (VS2003 -> VS2005) - Should see this early next week.
- Web Application Project Refresh
- Web Deployment Project Update - We are using this in Beta form now. It seems to work pretty well.
- Profile Provider for Database Tables - This sounds cool. It allows you to integrate existing profile data from external sources.
- Hosting upsize tool for SQL Express - I think this makes it easy to migrate SQL Express databases to real SQL Servers.
- CSS Adapters for Controls
