I’m a little late with this, as the release was announced at the end of last month, but since I’ve seen Page Brooks (who leads the project) twice now just this month, I figured it was about time to give the effort a little more publicity:

Silverlight Contrib 2009.1.0 has just been released.  This release includes the CoolMenu refactoring that was featured as a three part series on this blog.  I still have quite a few improvements to make on this control, but I figured it would be good to get out the enhancements that have been made so far.

For your convenience, I’ve copied the release notes for 2009.1.0 below:

A special thanks goes out to Robby Ingebretson for contributing some really cool Visual Studio Snippets and Tim Greenfield for the new GroupBox control.

As always, we take your feedback seriously so we can make the product better!  Also, if you think you could help make Silverlight Contrib better and are serious about helping, we would love to hear from you!  We need all the help we can get!  Thanks!

Page is definitely one of the top folks I know in the Silverlight community, so I would highly recommend checking out Silverlight Contrib, and pitching in if you can.

Silverlight Contrib 2009.1.0 Released!
