A lot has been happening this last month.  We've pretty much locked down TFS2005 SP1 and have been making good progress on the Orcas release.  A couple of weeks ago I posted about the performance improvements coming in Orcas - the picture there only continues to get better as we continue to find small things to tune.  In the ...
