One of the coolest new capabilities we're building for Enterprise Library v3 is the Application Block Software Factory. As its name ever-so-subtly suggests, this will be a software factory for building your own application blocks.

When we stepped back and looked at the global tool infrastructure, we determined that people were frustrated with having to manage and operate a hammer factory factory, as well as the hammer factory that it produced. That kind of overhead can get pretty cumbersome when you deal with the likely scenario of also operating a tape measure factory factory, a saw factory factory, and a level factory factory, not to mention a lumber manufacturing conglomerate holding company.
And that is all I am going to say about it today.
