    Has the Google code been updated? The version available over the weekend won’t build under beta 2. It has a casting error and a reference to a method that doesn’t exist that stop it building. Plus a ton of warnings about obsolete/deprecated properties and methods that will disappear post beta 2. I did email the author (as listed on gotdotnet where the download is) saying this was a poor advert for Beta 2 when the code being put up wasn’t even being checked but never heard back.

    Good question, let me check on the Google example…

    Sorry for the delay – the Google code was updated today, please check it out. And thanks for reporting the issue!
