I'm making a snowy scene with a strong overhang, and I want the material displayed on the steep slopes to be a dark blue, with a slight reflection, is it possible to add reflection to a terrain or to a surface layer? Or will I have to wait for a later version?

Yes, it is possible--just use a Reflective Shader.

I've done it, e.g. in this scene.

That's a cool picture, how did you set it up? I put a reflective shader in but couldnt get it to work properly. Could iIsee the .tgd file? Or maybe a screenshot of the node layout?

You can add a child layer to the surface layer you want to be reflective and choose the reflective shader.
