Astoria is now ASP.NET Data Services


Astoria has been renamed (ASP.NET Data Services) and added to the ASP.NET Extensions package (which includes the MVC support as well as other facilities).  Looks like ASP.NET Data Services is slated for a release in Q2 2008.  If you're interested in Astoria, go grab the CTP here:

New CTP's from Microsoft...

I've addressed that and you can now download the source code.
