Visual Studio 2010
Some amazing improvements to the development experience within Visual Studio. Life might just get a little simpler from now one?
Cool, you no longer need to use SharePoint Manager 2007 (Although this is an excellent tool) You can now explore SharePoint directly from Visual Studio 2010
