MVVM Light Toolkit patch for WP7 Mango Beta

On Tuesday the 24th of May 2011, the new version of the Windows Phone 7 SDK codenamed “Mango” was released to the public in beta. This is a huge iteration with an extremely large number of new APIs. Most exciting, the version of the Silverlight framework now used in Windows Phone 7 is Silverlight 4. Thanks to this, I was able to recompile the MVVM Light Toolkit for Windows Phone 7 based on the Silverlight 4 version. This is interesting because the Silverlight 3 version had a few hacks I had to build in to work around some limitations of the framework. Now in Silverlight 4, the code is leaner and cleaner.

You've answered my first question already in the name of the Mango release file :D

So dates for V4?

Hey Laurent,

Thanks for all the great work! Any idea when the new Mango bits will be integrated into the V4 version?

Hi Laurent,

I was just wondering if you ever released a newer version of MVVM Light with the final version of Mango or is the Beta still the most recent version?

Best regards,
Joel.
