From the official site:

Today we have an exciting breakthrough for the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community – the ability for anyone to unlock a WP7 device without a Marketplace developer account.

Unlocking allows the sideloading of experimental applications that would otherwise can’t be published to the Marketplace, such as those which access private or native APIs.

I have tested the unlocker. If you install the cert on your phone (available at xda) and add the registry key to your workstation´s registry it works as described:

1. You can add your own ringtones (after you have converted them to wma format)
2. You can sideload up to 10 apps (this means not from marketplace)

if you have a xap installer.

I think the unlocker does the same as the MS developer package for 99 bucks. It´s not a real jailbreak as known from the iphone but it´s a first big step forward.
Anyway it´s worth to be tested because it´s for free and you can easyly relock the phone if you want.


Cheers
