Metasploit Express too is now available for evaluation and purchase http://www.metasploit.com/express
As for Metasploit framework, there have been tremendous improvements in Meterpreter, along with a new command "getsystem" that uses several techniques for privilege escalation and network protocol bruteforcing etc. Truly, a fantastic release!
