New DevNugget: Silverlight Controls and Composition
Andrew Duthie and Pete Brown are collaborating to put up some Silverlight WebCasts done by Pete. Short, but worth the time spent... but don't take my word for it... go watch :)
Sparkling Client PodCast with Me!
My buddy Erik Mork of Sparkling Client PodCast put up a PodCast with Shawn Wildermuth. Erik's work is always good, and Shawn is an interesting guy, so you know this is good!
Who Ate My Mouse Down Event??
Jesse Liberty couldn't stand getting out of town without taking one more shot :) ... this one discusses the Mouse Down Event issues people are having with Beta 2 ... great information!
Attached Properties in Silverlight
If you're wondering WTF are Attached Properties, then wonder no more as Ilia Iordanov explains it all at SilverlightShow.
Tip: Force firing MouseLeftButtonDown event on any place in a StackPanel
Getting a Left Mouse Button Down message from randomly inside a StackPanel ... seems like some of the issues we had in 1.0 ... or the solution seems familiar :)
Using the RepeatButton control in Silverlight 2
Ivan Dragoev blogs about the RepeatButton in Beta 2... continuing the expose of all the controls. I for one am glad to see lots of original work at SilverlightShow... and happy to blog it as well... keep up the good work guys!

David Anson [Delay] updated his HTMLTextBlock sample to Beta 2. I've not only blogged this before but emailed the link to a few people... interesting and good work!

Dave, you're too kind ;)

It's interesting to me just how much stuff changed for Beta 2. Kinda caught me by surprise. Shawn's a great guide through what's important and what's not.
