Starting in AutoCAD 2008, you can now control more layer properties on a per viewport basis. You could always freeze layers per viewport, but now you can change color, linetype, lineweight, and plot style. Now the same line can be red with the hidden linetype in one viewport and green with a continuous linetype in another viewport.
These additional layer properties add several columns to the layer dialog. You can hide unused columns easily by right-clicking on any column and unchecking the ones you want to hide.
