Catching up with Silverlight 2

March 10, 2008

Starting last week on March 5th after Silverlight 2 Beta 1 was announced, a lot has been said about Silverlight 2.  Presentations have been given, demos have been shown, bits have been released, tutorials have been posted and many conversations have been had.  As an attempt to catalog some of the more interesting and useful content, I’m posting my list of highlights since SL2B1 day.


In the unlikely event you haven’t found where yet, you can grab the runtime and tools for Silverlight 2 Beta 1 on Silverlight.net.
