I'd like to have the possibility to generate drop/create scripts for objects like procedures, functions, triggers, views and anything else that can be dropped without losing data.

As we've released a new Beta, I've updated the original post above with detail on the new features and bug fixes.

Please post your feedback as soon as possible to maximize our chances to fix the issues before the full release.

I notice that after working my way through the deployment wizard and launching the generated script in management studio, the code window no longer has focus, requiring me to grab the mouse and click the code window before hitting F5. Since I'm keyboard centric, I have to ask, is this by design as it is a change from 9.0's behavior?

For what it is worth, I am running the version of management studio that ships with sql server 2008 r2.

Keep it up!
