WCF LOB Adapter SDK - The Future of the XMA?

People have been talking about ILM adopting the WCF LOB Adapter SDK sometime in the future. What does that mean to you? Personally I'm excited about it, since it has the opportuntity to improve the XMA experience for ILM fans. I'm doing a talk on XMAs at DEC 2008, and might have a demo ready by then using an XMA with the WCF LOB Adapter SDK. In the meantime if you are curious here are some links:

ILM 2007 FP1

FP1 is available for download now. Look for new and improved Exchange 2007 provisioning support on the ADMA (check out the last property page of the MA). Haven't tried this in a lab yet but the installation didn't ask me about PowerShell so I am not sure what will happen when I provision a new mailbox with the ADMA.

DEC 2008 - Anybody Up For A Hockey Game?

Vegas will be sadly missed but I'm pretty excited about the opportunity to speak at the Directory Experts Conference again (this time in Chicago, anybody up for a hockey game?).

Here's a peek into what my session will be:

ILM Extensibility
Hello my name is Craig, and I have a problem. I get XMA hammered on a regular basis. Every problem is a nail and I pound it with my trusty XMA. In this session the Open Source LDAP XMA will be used as a basis for discussion on XMA development, including when and how to use and XMA, but more importantly, when NOT to use and how NOT to use the XMA.
