Crystal reports (CR), a long-time Visual Studio add-in staple, is not included out of the box with VS 2010 this time.  Traditionally CR has been the reporting tool of choice included with VS.  While the Crystal Report engine is not included with VS 2010, there is still a CR template included.  This template stubs your project as a Crystal Reports project.  You can then obtain the new CR for VS 2010 report engine by downloading it free of charge from the SAP website. Currently that link is here

This download includes a new WPF viewer for Windows Forms, which has some nifty new features.  There are also some performance gains when using this.
