Question:

How do you get IIS to release the dlls it calls so you can overwrite them without restarting?

Answer:

To do this,just go to Component Services MMC, right-click on the package containing the DLL's and select Shut Down. Alternatively, from a command prompt type 'net stop iisamin' and then 'net start w3svc' (dll's will be released then).
