Can’t wait to get my hands on BizTalk 2009 R2 changes / enhancements after the demo video from PDC .
See the video here
The mapper gets a complete overhaul with help from Microsoft Research.
Top Features / changes / enhancements/ Productivity Improvements
– Relevance Tree
– Auto Scroll – Click on the map node or functoid, and the map would scroll itself to the respective nodes.
– Gray out out of focus links ( reduce clutter ) –> this one will make my life easier
– Clicking on a node would highlight the related associations (Reduce clutter) –> I had requested this feature for BTS 2009.. Thanks Microsoft you have listened.
– Move functiods to other Pages –> this one tooo..
– Search – for tags within the map: “Loop” would highlight the filtered nodes and functoids.
– VS 2010 integration –> awesome finally Microsoft will bring BTS developers to use the latest and greatest VS2010 tools.
