“We owe a great debt to many open source projects, and we’re committed to continuing on their path. … and in that spirit, we are making all of our code open source as well. We hope to collaborate with the entire community to help drive the web forward.” (Source: Google Blog, 1 Sep 08)

Email Prioritizer is an free add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 that helps you manage email overload. and it prioritizes email to help you focus on the email messages that are most important to you with a 0-3 star rating system. It also provides a “do not disturb” button that temporarily pauses new email arrival.
It does this by using various algorithms to automatically identify the importance or urgency of e-mail messages delivered into an Outlook 2007 in-box. This idea was developed from a research project by Eric Horvitz and Mary Czerwinski.

·You can see inner exceptions when an exception happens on the design surface. This will let you delve deeper into the cause of the exception.
·You now get font previews in the Text Property Inspector which makes it easier to choose your font.
· We now automatically save the XAML file after adding an event handler. Previously, you had to save it explicitly.
·We have configured our value editors a lot better than what they were in the previous release (Beta1). For example, editing BitmapEffects is now a lot easier. So is adding items to an ItemsControl, for example ContextMenu.
