Hopefully they've fixed everything listed on the @SPDevWiki SP2010 "have they fixed" page as well as nice new features.

So far from what's public the Developer Dashboard is my favourite! OH and the F5 debugging experience!

An XSLT List View Web Part as explained here. Haven't spent many difficult hours adding custom behaviour to the existing CAML-based LVWP, I'm very happy to see it bite the dust.

There are plenty of features we can say I am very interested in SharePoint 2010.

  1. Client Object Model
  2. Visual Upgrade
  3. Client Tools and deploy and integrate options in Visual Studio.
  4. Improvements in SharePoint designer 2010.
  5. WCF services integration and .NET 3.0 LINQ queries.
  6. Site workflows, Workflows enhancement and Visio integration support.
  7. Single master page for both application and site.
  8. SQL Server PowerPivot for SharePoint
  9. Chart web part.
  10. Social Bookmarking options.
  11. SharePoint 2010 FAST search and wild card search options.
  12. Developer dashboard - Should help to devs as we can investigate what is taking which amount of time.
  13. Sandbox solutions.
  14. Web analytics web part

And last non other than UI rendering. Almost all rendering is using DIVS instead of TABLES and the nice styles.
