Silverlight 2 has SHIPPED!

It’s official – we’ve shipped Silverlight 2!


ScottGu, our VP, has a great release blog post, which is worth a read.

You can get all the new SL2 downloads here:

  1. Install Silverlight 2 runtime.
  2. Install Silverlight Tools for Visual Studio 2008 SP1
  3. Install Expression Blend 2 SP1 update.  (If you don’t already have Expression Blend 2, you can get a free trial.)

On a personal note, it’s been a privilege to work with such a great group of people to put out this product.  I’ve learned a lot, and more importantly, had a lot of fun.  So, a shout out to my teammates – you guys rock.  This one was special.


p.s.  And yes, I promise to update all my tutorials for RTM soon.  Real soon.  Ok, probably next week.  :)


  1. Thanks for the great tools and platform. Now that we have the bits in place for SL2 to work nice with WPF. When do we expect to see a VSM for WPF? When will MS release better WPF/SL2 designing support in Visual Studio ( Don’t get me wrong, Blend is nice )?
