as a new feature of custom post types of 3.1 is option to enable custom post type archive using 'has_archive' => true.
Problem is, that this archive page got few limitations
- it is not possible to add it using Nav menus (except direct Custom link)
- if using the standard archive.php page, the common function for getting archive page name (e.g. single_tag_title) or description (e.g. tag_description) do not work - the best now is to use get_queried_object()->name resp. get_queried_object()->description
Also it is not obvious, that when you create a custom post type and taxonomy (with public=true) they are not visible on menu navigation page - you must make them visible using the top View menu (it took me a while to realize it)
