With the shell refresh that is coming in Visual Studio 2010, a great deal of the UI has been replaced with new Windows Presentation Foundation parts. The new project dialog (NPD), for example, recieved a complete overhaul as well as some new functionality. Our
goal was to make the NPD more efficient to use via the ability to search and order results, as well as more functional through the integration with the Visual Studio Gallery. What does this mean to you? You can get to what you need much faster, and you can
discover community generated templates right from within Visual Studio itself.
