Using the cores

Visual Studio 2005 by default uses multiple cores of a CPU for compiling different projects at the same time and if your solution is made from only one project, then the multiple cores aren't really going to help you. This tool MPCL will be installed in VS and will make it use all cores for compiling a single project. Very nice and handy.
VS 2008 is going to have this feature in it, other than this there doesn't seem to be much enhancements for the VC part.
