Silverlight 2 – The release candidate and next steps

On Thursday night we published the first public release candidate for Silverlight 2, described in some detail by Scott Guthrie.  This is a developer-only release and you can learn all about what it is and how to get it in a terrific blog post by Tim.

Starting immediately,  I'll be re-focusing this blog on clarifying what has changed, how it affects your programming and what you need to know to get ready for release.

As of today, I am making a commitment to you to have a meaningful blog entry published every day by 1pm Eastern (GMT –5).  By every day I mean… every day.

It is my goal for this blog to become the go-to resource on a day to day basis and for there to be a substantive Silverlight article here every day. 1pm.  Look for less clutter, more signal, less noise.

To kick things off, today I'll be blogging on a change in how you create the default appearance of custom controls (in generic.xaml) in the release candidate.  Look for it by 1pm.
