Microsoft Web Deployment Tool Technical Preview 1: Yesterday the IIS team posted the first preview of a new Microsoft Web Deployment tool. This tool works with both IIS6 and IIS7 and enables automated deployment, synchronization, and migrating of applications on web servers. If you are looking for a great way to automate the deployment of your ASP.NET applications then this tool is definitely one to check out. To learn more, read the walkthroughs at the bottom of this page (in particular the "Introduction to MS Deploy" one). This tool is awesome and should make automated deployment much easier.
