    Another thing that recently came up which isn't documented that I thought I'd pass on: if you have characters such as = or " or ' in your XPath when doing databinding, the parser will be unhappy, unless you escape those characters with \.

    In recently porting some code to Beta 2 of WPF, I hit one of the XAML Syntax Tightening changes that Tim referred to in his post on Breaking Changes in Beta 2 .

    There are a handful of new features in Beta 2 and lots of performance tweaks and bug fixes. My favorite new feature: the ZIndex property! Hooray!
