I already have the XDK and Visual Studio up and running.
Hopefully (Pwease?) Toni Wilen will accept SENSIBLE questions on upgrading the WinUAE core that WinUAEX uses.
XPORT tried to move to the latest version of the WinUAE source a while ago but it was too slow on the XBOX's 733MHz celeron.
Getting a few emulation bug-fixes in, such as the BPLCON3 BRDRBLNK, and RIGHT BORDER colours etc. which shouldn't affect emulation speed would be excellent (cos they really p!ss me off).
