Microsoft's Visual Studion LightSwitch team just launched a new feedback site called "UserVoice" to gathers and sorts ideas by popularity, giving the team an immediate view of the most requested features. Anyone can visit the site and tell what they want to see in the next versions of Visual Studio LightSwitch," informs LightSwitch Team.

"Just head over to Microsoft Connect and then click the "Submit Idea" button. This will take you to the LightSwitch UserVoice site where you can sign up with email, Facebook, or a Google account. Once registered, you can view ideas submitted by other people and vote on these ideas, or enter new ideas. Each person is given 10 votes to apply across the list of ideas. This way we can tell what's really important for people," the LightSwitch Team stated.

"You are free to move your votes around over time, and when an idea is closed out all votes for that idea are returned to you, so you can apply them to other ideas as we accept or decline the suggestions."

"Anyone can comment on the ideas submitted. The site is lightweight and designed for making it a pleasant, efficient experience to submit ideas. We'll be looking at these feature suggestions often so that it influences our feature priorities for future versions of LightSwitch," the LightSwitch Team added.

In a news releated to LightSwitch, Beth Massi updated his "Deployment Guide: How to Configure a Web Server to Host LightSwitch Applications."

This guide is meant for people who want to host three-tier LightSwitch applications on their own IIS servers. There was only a couple screen shot updates but now it should be clearer on how to set this up. You can read it here:
