MVVM Light V4.1 with support for Windows Phone 8

#mvvmlight V4 update for Win8 RTM
With Windows 8 RTM out of the doors (at least for some of us), it was also time to create an update to MVVM Light. I selected the V4 RTM to do this (V4.0.23).This RTM version was released a few weeks ago with no much bells and whistles because I was just too busy to write much about it. Now after some vacation, I will resume blogging on all my favorite topics including of course MVVM Light. Read the rest of this entry » ......

Declaring an ICommand in Windows 8 Consumer Preview
[Update 24/4/2012]

Well I'll be… after I posted this, a few people wrote to me and told me they are unable to repro the issue. I then tested again and indeed, it works. No idea why I couldn't get it to work in the first place.
