No sleep for developers tonight. Microsoft has posted three updates for us to sink our teeth into.

First up, we have the .NET Compact Framework 1.0 SP2 Developer Redistributable (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=10600643-09b3-46d8-ba28-bc494bc20d26&displaylang=en). This improves about three dozen different things. They also include my nine favorite words: "This service pack does not introduce any API changes."

Next, are the Windows Mobile Developer Power Toys (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=74473fd6-1dcc-47aa-ab28-6a2b006edfe9&displaylang=en). We've got ten new tools to help us get the job done. I think the Emulator ActiveSync Connection Tool is really going to help test deployment scenarios. Remember, though, these tools are not supported.

Lastly, there is an update to the Windows CE Utilities for Visual Studio .NET 2003 Add-on (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=7ec99ca6-2095-4086-b0cc-7c6c39b28762&displaylang=en).

Happy coding!
