Thanks to my team at Provoke for working on the CKS (Community Kit for SharePoint) we have been able to get an insiders view of building and extending core SharePoint functionality. Ari Bakker has been part of the CKS enhanced blog edition team and worked on this release along with a few of our designers. Check out Lawrence Liu's announcement post about the pre-release of CKS 2.0.

The CKS blog edition releases are available here.
