Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 Beta

UPDATE: ADO.NET team blog talk about what changes to expect from this BSP. One major thing is support for SQL Server 2008 via Server Explorer. So now you can use SQL Server 2008 with the Entity Framework (I've not tried this so do not know how well it works). Read the post here. A little information on this subject can be found over at LINQinAction here.
