I heard that you can sync data between MS Project 2010 and Sharepoint 2010, which is a huge improvement. When and how can I start using these?

Yes, indeed. With MS Project 2010, you can synchronize it to a project task list in SharePoint. This feature supports the current version WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007 and future version SharePoint Foundation (WSS 4.0) or MSS 2010. I hosted a recent webcast "How To Effectively Utilize Project 2010 with SharePoint 2010" that showcased this.
Here's a blog post from the MS Project team showcasing the syncing capabilities.
Lastly, Project 2010 is not publicly available yet. You can register to be alerted once beta trials are available.
Let me know if you have any other questions related to MS Project and/or SharePoint.

Thanks, and thanks for the link. Do you know when beta trials will be available?

If I'm not mistaken MS Project 2010 beta trials will be available by late November 2009

I've been using Project 2010 (beta) for about a week, running it on Vista. I haven't experienced any problems.
On a related topic, I see that Project 2010 has adopted the ribbon menu that appears in Office 2007. What's significan about the Backstage feature? Is it simply another view? Or is it replacing the old Project File menu and the Office menu from Office 2007?

I noticed in all of the documentaion (including the post you referenced) it states the sync can only occur with Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Server or Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010. The reason I'm wondering about this is because I have Project 2010 and we are still running WSS 3. When I tried to perform the sync, I received the message that the link was invalid.
Is there any further information regarding the versions this works with?
