I was excited about webmatrix after listening to the podcast. Finally got around to trying it today, but no intellisense and no basic error checking is a deal breaker! Are either of those coming in a future release?

My own personal site is desperately in need of updating. I'm listening to your WebMatrix episode, and it just sounds so....magical....with unicorns and stuff. Can we get a brief screencast of some of your interaction with webmatrix (to go with the source code already requested above) so we can feel some of your magic?
