Release 2.0 is targeted at VS 2010.
VS 2010 exposes major new extensibility points:
1) Recorder plugins enable you to do custom correlations and other web test fixups as part of the recording.
2) Result viewer plugins enable you to add tabs to playback, opening up a lot of new possibilities including adding viewers for non-html content types.
3) Edior plugin enables you to provide edit controls for http post bodies.
In addition to providing useful examples of each of these, the release 2.0 carries forward the item templates from 1.2, as well as plugins that did not make it into the product.
