Some time and frayed nerves later, Apple got round to posting fresh iPhone 2.0 beta firmware.

According to the lads at MacRumors, the updated iPhone beta firmware, version 5A240d, includes a number of fixes and new features centered on Exchange support, including:

Additional abilities of receiving and accepting meeting invitations
Searching for contacts in the global address list
Auto-complete email addresses in the global address list
Setting up an exchange account using Autodiscovery (Exchange 2007)
