Microsoft announced the Bing Toolbox today, which is a new portal for webmasters, publishers, developers, and advertisers. Basically it is a resource for finding useful Bing-related tools. Here’s the official description:

The Toolbox is an organized set of tools for the entire Bing community. It’s a one-stop portal to all of the services you need to drive traffic and increase engagement with your site and applications.

Bing Toolbox

Included in the Bing Toolbox are

- An add-a-site feature, which allows you to directly submit your URL to Bing

- A submit-your-sitemap feature, which lets you do so using Bing’s Webmaster tools

- A Get an AppID feature, which lets users get started with the Bing API

- A feature called "Go to PowerToys," which gives tools, samples, and best practices for using the API.

"The Toolbox provides everything you need to work with Bing in one place—as well as the site you’ll want to regularly visit for announcements of cool new features the moment they’re ready," says Bing Webmaster Center’s Rick DeJarnette. " This is a first effort and we’ll be building out the site with new content and updated tools as they become available."

The Bing Toolbox provides links to the webmaster blog, the developer blog, and relevant threads from the Bing forums. Beyond the actual "toolbox" section of the Toolbox, you can get to separate sections for Developers, webmasters, ads & campaign tools, community, and support.
