In the next blog I hope to show the design time features for 1.1 version.  On an EMEA webinar today, I learned that registration for the SDK beta program for Design Studio be handled here on the SAP Community Network, either later this month or some time next month.

Also for a great application of Design Studio, please see this application by SAP’s Joanna Denford
