In response to some requests from Port 25 visitors, this week I am going to start a weekly series of posts focused on new Codeplex releases.  Because we haven't done this in the past, I'm going to look back about a month on this first post but moving forward I'll provide a weekly update.  These updates are primarily going to focus on releases made by Microsoft but if you own a Codeplex project and you'd like to see it listed here, please shoot me a mail:  michael.francisco@microsoft.com.
