We have announced a small update to the F# 2.0 Free Tools release over on the recently created F# Team Blog.

Here's the introduction to the release announcement:

Today the F# team has released an update to the F# 2.0 Free Tools Release, last updated in August 2010.

This is a relatively small update to bring our free tools release into line with Visual Studio 2010 SP1, announced by Jason Zander here. Visual Studio 2010 SP1 included a relatively small number of fixes to the F# 2.0 Compiler and Library (see the Visual Studio Team description of SP1).

Perhaps more importantly, this release includes the core F# support to enable F# 2.0 development for Silverlight 4 and Silverlight 5 . Once you install Visual Studio 2010 SP1 (and, if using Silverlight 5, the Silverlight 5 Beta SDK and Visual Studio Tools), you can install the MSI release of the F# 2.0 Free Tools release to enable Silverlight 4.0 or 5.0 development with F# 2.0.
