This represents a HUGE step forward for .NET and Web Developers everywhere. Over 1 year in various alpha and beta versions, Silverlight 2 is finally released to the web. For those of you that have been developing on Silverlight 2 Beta 2, there are some breaking changes that you’ll need to address, but if you download the RC0 developer tools, you can get a head start on addressing those issues.
Be sure to download the final Silverlight 2 RTW bits tomorrow from http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight
For those of you not developing applications using Visual Studio and instead choose to work in Eclipse, we’re also announcing the release of a Technology Preview of Eclipse Tools for Silverlight – an open source development add-in that enables Silverlight Development in Eclipse. Done in partnership with Soyatec, you can read more about it at http://www.eclipse4sl.org/
