leave a comment »


As mentioned over past couple of blog posts – Silverlight v2 Beta 1 is being launched at Mix 08. 

I just noticed that the downloads have now been launched to the public – and are available at the following links :

Install Microsoft® Silverlight™ 2 Beta

Microsoft® Silverlight™ 2 SDK Beta 1 

Source Code for Silverlight 2 Beta 1 Controls  

Microsoft® Silverlight™ 2 SDK Beta 1 Documentation

or you can download the following pack (which includes the Silverlight 2 Beta 1 + SDK + a KB for VS2008)

Silverlight Tools for VS2008


The new Beta/Preview version of the Expression Products  (which has the bits required to create/edit Silverlight 2.0 projects) is also available at :

Microsoft Expression Blend 2.5 March 2008 Preview

Expression Web 2 Beta

Expression Studio 2 Beta

but wait there’s more…

Deep Zoom Composer (Prepare Images for use with the Deep Zoom feature in Silverlight 2 Beta 1

These are of course previews/beta’s so expect lot’s of pain (and crashing) whilst test driving these new tools and SDK’s.
