New Release of Enterprise Library 4

I have long had a love affair with the Data Access Application Block, DAAB since it was first release way back in the old days. Since then it has become part of the Enterprise Library and supported and maintained by the Patterns and Practices Group. Today they announced the CTP release of version 4 of the Enterprise Library.
