Learning resources for C# 4.0 and .NET 4.0 new features

Update 05.08.2009: I have posted learning resources for Entity Framework 4.0 and ASP.NET 4.0 Web Forms. I have also updated the resources for C# 4.0.

Update 13.07.2009: There is a separate post for security transparency.

With the eminent release of a beta release for Visual Studio 2010 next month, I thought it would be nice to have learning resources for the new features introduced in .NET 4.0 and especially in C# 4.0.
