Silverlight 4 RC & Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP!


Go download the Silverlight 4 RC!

Just a few of my favorite new SL4 RC features since the Beta:

  • Full screen pinning (watch videos full screen while typing in a different window, on a different monitor.  wahoo for multi-tasking!)
  • Rich text formatting spring loading (be able to hit bold and just watch it work)
  • WebCam preview (see previews of the web cam in the config dialog)
  • Binding support in VisualStates (use databinding in your state storyboards)
  • Navigation loader refresh (support refreshing a Page in a Frame)



Go download Silverlight for Windows Phone Developer Tools!

In this package, you’ll get:

  • Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone CTP
  • Windows Phone Emulator CTP
  • Silverlight for Windows Phone CTP
  • XNA 4.0 Game Studio CTP

  2. Regarding “Binding support in VisualStates” I had problems getting this to work, and from what I’ve been hearing at the Mix, there was a regression on this.
    Do you have an example of this working?
