Yep – that’s right, RC0 is here! From his posting, there are a load of bug fixes, some breaking changes, 3 new controls and a whole new look-n-feel. Password boxes and Progress bars I can take or leave, but the ComboBox is the important one as far as getting Silverlight into enterprise applications.
There’s a slight gotcha (as well as the well documented breaking changes) in that you have to uninstall Blend 2.5 before you can install RC0 (and boy did THAT take a while) but the upgrade of Blend 2.0 to SP1 (preview) was seamless. Personally I think making Silverlight support available in Blend 2.0 was the right move – not everyone is willing to use Beta software in order to get the tooling.
Good stuff and well done to Scott & his team.
