For a month ago I was at a .NET seminar hosted by MS and the spokesman said,
you should be cautios with beta software. They don't delibrately cribble the
software, but sometimes, depending on the scope of the build, known errors
e.t.c., they disable known buggy or other functionality.
And I did take it that way.

No, it didn't take the project files out of the box. It insisted to upgrade
the soulution and project files.
