Silverlight Cream for October 14, 2008 -- #396

In This Issue: Bart Czernicki, Rob Houweling, Scott Guthrie, Tim Heuer, Jesse Liberty, Laurence Moroney, and Karl Shifflett.

I should call this my Silverlight 2 Release post, because looking at it, there are only 3 posts that are not directly related.

I'm not going to list out in detail everyone that has a link blog (like me), but I do have the major, fact-filled, entries below, and will give shout-outs to posts by Tim Sneath, Somasegar, and Scott Hanselman -- I think that's a first :)

Adam Kinney has taken part in another video, and although it appears his hair is still his normal color, I'm positive it's worth a look: PDC 2008 Badges interview, cereal included.

Jeff Weber has been busy and reports Diver Has Been Updated To Final Silverlight 2 Release.

I had been scrounging the web last weekend, and didn't hear about yesterday's press release until early yesterday morning. Apparently I was not alone in that, and at least one product developer has written about it: Silverlight 2 RTW, or, how Microsoft choked .


From SilverlightCream.com:
Ensure sure your Silverlight Beta 2 code works past this week!!!
Bart Czernicki has some good advice for avoiding having your pages crash on your users...

This morning, Laurent Bugnion posed a question to Tim Heuer wondering if he was up all night ... yikes ... it sure looks like it by this blog post... Between Scott Guthrie's post above, and Jesse Liberty's below... I can't think of anything else you'd need to get rolling. As Tim emailed out this morning "Get your download engines on"!
Silverlight 2 Release Guide
Jesse Liberty has a great blogpost covering everything I could possible ask a question about the release: If you're new to SL, All your beta code is broke, What you need to start, and on, and on... all good stuff, and I'm not just saying that because he mentioned me blog :) --- thanks Jesse!
