What are the new features with Datasheet functionality in SharePoint 2010 as compared to 2007?

Areas of focus:

  • Ability to control column width, Show/Hide, freeze header row?
  • File operations from Datasheet view (e.g., 2007 only allowed Read-Only file access)
  • Concurrent editors?

We did some test around using DevExpress ASPXGridView that comes with SharePoint webpart that renders any list in a grid that supports the ability to control column width, Show/Hide, freeze header row. – Karthik Murugesan May 17 '11 at 17:05

AFAIK there are not significant improvements for Datasheet functionality for end users in SharePoint 2010, and I haven't seen any in your focus areas.
