Okay – corny title. Sorry. But after my initial elation in working with Data Services I ran into a couple of “issue” and this news helps keep me going. Such as not being able to get a virtual count being the most outstanding problem. Here’s that link:

Looks like it will be a side-by-side release. Now that could be good or very good. Hint – if we have to give up the VS 2008 tooling it’s only “good”.

I’m very pleased that they are responding sooner that forcing a longer wait until .Net 4/VS 2010. I still very much dislike the Entity Framework v1 design choices (specifically the forced reliance on an xml mapping schema), but the pain is worth the gain. The book “Programming Entity Framework” is a big help.
