I've just downloaded and installed the Microsoft Expression Media 2 Beta:
The new features that MS lists on the above page make no mention of an increase in the catalog size limit.

In the program's Help file, it states:

Each catalog can contain up to 128,000 files, with a limit of 1.8 GB

However, the help pages all state:

This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in a future release. Blank topics are included as placeholders.

I was expecting MS to fix this catalog size limit! Does anyone know what the deal is on this? It could of course be different once the full version is released. At the moment, this is very disappointing!

From the Microsoft info:

Still a 2GB catalog limit.  Sorry.  I know this will upset several people, including some of our closest friends.  Even though a 2GB catalog can track roughly 200GB of photos, I know that's not enough for some advanced scenarios.

The truth is that we're planning to rework/recast the catalog dramatically over the next year.  The workgroup story that I told above fits into that.  Changing the catalog in both xm2 and again in xm3 would have broad impact on our entire customer base, so I chose to only make the change once, later.

"advanced scenario"?  It sounds suspiciously like we're stuck for a LONG time with this limit.......
