Windows Phone SDK 2nd Beta Released.

Today we launched the second Beta of the Windows Phone SDK (renamed from ‘Windows Phone Developer Tools’).

The bits are now live on the Download Center; and they will be available [for the first time] via WebPI around mid-day today. In addition to this release, we are in the process of sending out Connect invites to eligible App Hub registered developers, providing them with a tool to update their retail devices to receive ‘Mango’ build 7661.

This is a pretty impressive milestone; and Twitter is already ablaze with excitement.

To get the bits, here are URIs of note:
