Getting data from a web service with Microsoft AJAX Library October Release using the Core bits - Microsoft AJAX Library and ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions

I've been work with getting data back from a web service with the October Release and using the Core Bits.  If I try and return a datatable, I have been getting an error.  I did some checking and I found that the datatable serializer is in the CTP dll, so this has been a frustrating situation.  I did some reading and some additional checking and it looks like the only way to return data from a web service through a web service is by creating a strongly typed set of objects.  I've been creating a Generic List<T> and then calling a .ToArray() when I return the data.  if you have some additional suggestions, feel free to add them as a comment in this message.

If you start checking ou the new tags, most of the tags have had their prefix change from atlas: to asp:.  I say most because the UpdateProgress has not had its prefix changed.
