Silverlight 2 beta 2 is live!

Here we go, Silverlight 2 beta 2 can be downloaded and installed! I had the chance to take part to an "insiders" program at Microsoft, and to play with SL2 b2 for a couple of weeks, and it's a good one. You should switch to b2 as soon as you can!

Thanks Laurent!

Been waiting eagerly for this release.

Lots of great goodies, but if I put on my designer hat, I am very dissapointed of the lack of things like RenderTargetBitmap (or VisualBrush), effects or even just plain ol' pixel manipulation. Hope these features end up in the 2.0 RTM...I don't think I'm patient enough for a 3.0 time line :)

Hi Jer,

There are many things missing from Silverlight 2, especially for us WPF freaks. I don't think we will see many new classes in the RTM, so probably VisualBrush will remain missing :( on the other hand, considering the limited time they spent implementing Silverlight (in comparison to WPF) and the fact that it's multi platform, it's no small feat... Patience, grashopper, patience :)

Laurent
