Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Beta and .NET 3.5 SP1 Beta

Here is Scott Guthrie's announcement.

The service packs are scheduled to RTM this summer.

I think the following are useful features:
- Faster application startup times
- .NET Framework Client Profile: only includes the client side libraries for a smaller download.
- ClickOnce improvements
- WPF Improvements
- The ADO.NET Entity Framework and LINQ to Entities (yay!)
- Astoria: a REST-based data service
- WCF improvements
