  • Hi,

    One ting that has really improved is the monitoring capabilities when you have Windows Server AppFabric isntalled. You can emable traching for workflow services and see in a lot of detail how the avtivities have been executed, and any errors and exceptions that have occured.

    One aspect is mentioned by Alan, the WF4 tracking.
    Since WF4 is a break change from WF3/3.5. some new features added into WF4.You can set debug break point in both visual designer and xaml. Another thing that impress me is the visual tracking:
