If you haven’t already seen the official announcement at http://blogs.technet.com/msdeployment/archive/2009/06/26/microsoft-deployment-toolkit-2010-beta-2-is-now-available-for-download.aspx, the bits are now available for download from http://connect.microsoft.com.  (If you need the instructions for how to sign up check out http://blogs.technet.com/msdeployment/archive/2008/12/03/a-new-version-is-coming-soon.aspx.)  Please try this out and let us know what you think (the sooner the better – the march to RTM has already begun).

MDT 2010 Beta 2 is a significant change over previous versions (even beta 1), so be sure to check out the release notes and updated documentation.

In the coming days, I’ll start posting more messages about the changes in MDT 2010 Beta 2, from the large obvious ones (folders everywhere, PowerShell support, Windows 7 support) to the much more subtle ones.
