Depending on how many blogs you read, you’ll be seeing a barrage of “Silverlight 2 released” posts today.  If you haven’t seen it already, make sure you check Scott Guthrie’s post about the release at

Karl Shifflet just updated his XAML Power Toys to support the Silverlight 2 release.  If you are doing any WPF or Silverlight development, then I HIGHLY RECOMMEND downloading the power toys.  They greatly enhance the developer experience inside of Visual Studio.  Here’s the first paragraph from Karl’s page:

“XAML Power Toys is a Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Multi-AppDomain Add-In that empowers WPF & Silverlight developers while working in the XAML editor.  Its Line of Business form generation tools, Grid tools,  DataGrid and ListView generation really shorten the XAML page layout time.”
