Silverlight 2 beta 2 releasing this week

Microsoft SilverlightSome cool news coming out of Tech-Ed North America 2008 today from Bill Gates himself. Firstly Silverlight 2 beta 2 will be available this week including a commercial Go Live license and updated developer tools such as Microsoft Expression Blend 2.5 June 2008 Preview and Microsoft Silverlight Tools for Visual Studio 2008 beta 2.

This is great news for all Silverlight developers out there. From what I’ve read online this new release is going to break some compatibility with beta 1 but increase compatibility with Silverlight 1 and add a whole bunch of new and improved features as well as improved controls.

In addition we’ll see Internet Explorer 8 beta 2 out in August.
