New Page Editor using JQuery

We were using Ajax Control Toolkit for a lot of UI controls. But it has some serious performance issue. After comparing several client side javascript libraries we ended up with using JQuery. The core JQuery library is just about 20K compressed. It's significantly smaller than Ajax Control Toolkit. With the new page editor we are able to cut the first page load time into half. On average US broadband you should expect less than 2 seconds load time on the first page hit. 

We also improved the page editor UI in a great deal. You can drag and drop any blocks. All the block configurations are happened in the same page. Below is a screenshot of the new page editor.

Upgraded to ASP.NET 4 and VS 2010
We have upgraded the application to ASP.NET 4 which enables us to clean up web.config significantly. We also migrated to Enterprise Library 4.1. This version allows to run website at the medium trust. Thus it should support most shared hosting plan out there.
In this version we created an install package from Microsoft Web Platform Installer. You can now install directly from Windows Web App Gallery.
