The team blog of the Expression Blend and Design
Today at PDC, we made a few announcements that would be of interest to you! First, Scott Guthrie announced the availability of the Silverlight 4 Beta. This version of Silverlight contains some cool new features that many of you have asked for, so read the What’s New document to get an overview of some of the new features.
To coincide with the release of Silverlight 4 Beta today and the release of Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 a short while ago, we are making a version of Expression Blend available that allows you to work with .NET 4 and Silverlight 4 based projects.
Download it from the following location now:
This release of Expression Blend works well alongside Expression Blend 3, so you can continue to work on your WPF 3.5 and Silverlight 3 based projects at the same time.
As always, we love to hear from you. Please feel free to comment below or use our forums here.

Just heard the MIX10 keynote announce that Blend 4 would be a free upgrade (of some kind) for Expression Blend 3 owners. This is great news. It's too bad this wasn't announced much sooner, as my previous comment from November shows I have gone without Blend for months because I knew Silverlight and Blend 4 were coming.
Nevertheless, this is good news for current Blend owners and I applaud MSFT for helping their developers move forward at the same lightning fast pace Silverlight is moving at.
after reading the comments i started asking myself - should i even start to learn using this product ? why on earth would i be interested in learning proprietary products and pollute my mind with proprietary owned caged knowledge ?
