For those who are ready to start playing with Silverlight 2, its now available for download. You can get the following pieces that are all important for Silverlight:
- Silverlight 2 Beta 1 Tools for Visual Studio 2008 (including the SDK, VS Project support and help docs).
- Expression Blend 2.5 Preview (with support for new Silverlight 2 features).
- Silverlight 2 SDK (This inlcudes samples and documentation, but no tools. This is included in the Beta 1 Tools so you don’t need it if you are going to install the tools for VS 2008)
