Silverlight Beta 2 Releasing Today?

Posted in Silverlight at Friday, June 6, 2008 10:44 AM Pacific Daylight Time

A lot of people are waiting expectantly for the release of beta 2 of Silverlight 2.0. Dave, for instance, is watching a number of blogs and twitter. However, I just saw on Barak Cohen's Silverlight News blog that it is available today. He doesn't have a live link though and just says that:

Silverlight 2 will be available on download center and on http://microsoft.com/silverlight

Hmm.. Today is quickly coming to a close so maybe it will be released tonight? Keep an eye out.

Update: You can get a preview of the new Beta 2 tools that are coming here:

  1. WCF templates for Silverlight Enabled.
  2. Build configurations.
  3. XAML Validation now reports build errors.
  4. Setup Improvements.
  5. Projects created in Beta 1 are prompted for conversion when opening to Beta 2.
  6. Linking a Web Site to a Silverlight Application.

Check the post for a description of each of those. Lots of goodies!

Update2: As AN mentions below it is out! Get it here: http://silverlight.net/GetStarted/

Update3: Get the full scoop over on ScottGu's blog.
