The intent of this session is to show whats possible. The notes from the presentation will document all commands so just sit back and enjoy the ride.

We will highlight new features in Drush 4, so the session should be valuable even for folks who have used Drush for a while.

Still reeling

I knew all of the first 75% or so of this session, but the last 25% was so completely mind-blowing that I'm still dreaming up what I can do with Drush 5.

I hate to admit it, but I was so giddy that I literally LOL'd when they demo'd the entity-show and entity-add commands.

Hi, Can you share the slide
