ADO.NET Data Services for Silverlight 3 Update CTP3 now available for download

A few weeks back, we announced our Data Services update to .NET 3.5 SP1. That release introduced many new features. We are now releasing the Silverlight counterpart, ADO.NET Data Services for Silverlight 3 Update CTP3.

This CTP updates our Silverlight client assembly to make use of the new features. This release is just a CTP because we will be shipping with Silverlight 4. However, we wanted to give our users an early opportunity to try out our new features in Silverlight.

This is a side by side update. We recommend that you do not replace the original assembly. Instead, just extract the files and reference it from your projects.

To learn more about the new features, check out the Data Services Update to .NET 3.5 SP1 post here.

    Does this mean we can use the Silverlight Library against v2 in our Silverlight 4 applications.

  2. Mike Flasko says:

    Yes, you can use this library in your SL3 and SL4 projects. That said, all the features in this update are part of the data services client library that ships directly in the SL4 SDK

    This simply doesn’t seem to work.

    You instruct us to reference the new dll, not replace the old ones, however if we do so then VS2010RC simply ignores the path we specify and uses the file in C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft SDKsSilverlightv3.0LibrariesClient anyway

    Some guidance would be great.

    If you go to the properties of the SL project, you’ll see a "Reference Paths" tab. If you add the folder you put the assembly in, VS will pick up the file from there instead of the default path. Hope that helps!
