I searched though the forum and think we're lacking this kind of post to discuss and give solid build for new rogues for their talents.

I'll just copy what i write in my guild rogue section to here and start to edit/comment them one by one.

In addition, i'm not pro rogue but i have at least a lot of experience as TBC rogue. Positive comments, and more alternative builds are welcome. Particularly dagger build since i dont have that much experience over there.

Lving Progress:
Spend couple points in Imp Sinister strike first, then fill up assasination tree for Malice, Ruthlessness, Relentless strike. After that leave lethality in meanwhile and fill combat tree all way down, At 60 your talent should look like this, (You can go all way combat first if you want but for me i think addition crit and combo points from assassination tree help)

Nice work, I have added this to the Informative and useful Rogue threads sticky:
http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=305840938&sid=1

As this is for new rogues I'd be interested in seeing how a rogue should spec while levelling, I assume you'd recommend the Grinding spec as a levelling spec, but it might be a nice idea to give an indication of what talents to go for first.
