Reviews for this release

Documentation needs to be updated. Innumerable references to the 5.0 version that don't work in 6.0.

The recommended download is "Developer's Guide to MS Enterprise Library-Preview.pdf"; however, there is a newer version called "Developer's Guide to Microsoft Enterprise Library - 2nd Edition.pdf" which should be referenced instead. It's about 2500KB bigger, so it's definitely changed.

Is there any way to get the help into the Visual Studio help tool? It finds the docs online but not in local storage. Looks like the only installable EF docs from within the tool are for 5 and lower.

Thanks for reducing the foot print and "simplying" the blocks!
