1: The Designer Bus,
No documentation about this yet.
It makes integration of models allot easier. For example the integration between the Application Diagram and the Service Models or the Sequence Diagrams.
2: Using the Distributed System Designers and the Web Service Software Factory to build WCF applications.
Very nice :-)
There are new WSSF items in your Toolbox from where you can design services and there are parts of the Team Architect Powertool used to visualize implementation details.
I'm not a big fan of the PowerTools, a reasons is that there will be to much shapes on you design surface and classes / assemblies have a different level [lower] of abstraction than applications... I used it a for a while but stopped with it, Anyway, I give it a try in this CTP...
3: Visualizing Interaction Sequences between Service-Oriented applications.
This has some really added value when designing distributed systems..!
When you take a look at the document "Evaluating a Service-Oriented Architecture" from the SEI you can find this page, design and document a Service-Oriented Architecture with: a component and connector diagram [application diagram] and sequence diagrams...
