The Silverlight team started the day, and they are getting to the point where the core on Silverlight v2 is getting useable, but they are really lacking behind in controls, and they still seem to keep their dual focus both targeting the Business Line Applications and RIA.

After that the ASP.Net Team boomed us with a lot of upcoming features, most of it was classified but ASP.Net Dynamic Data Control v2 looks very entreating for Composite C1, this really could become a powerful control for Composite C1 developers.
