Matt mentioned the addition of tuples to CLR 4.0. Very happy to see that. Tuples help avoid the unnecessary introduction of types that serve merely to aggregate data. Types or classes to aggregate data was a very mid 90s programming technique, manifest in code featuring classes with data members, getter and setter accessor methods, and no significant behaviour.
