Visual C++ feature pack

Microsoft released the Visual C++ feature pack, which brings an updated MFC and -- the best part -- TR1 support to C++! No more looking for std::tr1::shared_ptr or std::tr1::unordered_set. Woho! Only problem is the installation currently fails if you are using a non-english Windows, the workaround is quite simple though: Go to the language options and set the format to English, and the location to USA. No need to change the UI language itself (on Vista).
