Drop shadow and blur effects in Silverlight 3 Beta

You can add drop shadows or blur effects to your objects very easily in Silverlight 3 Beta. Check out DropShadowEffect and BlurEffect. In these API reference there is code showing how to create the effects using XAML or proceedural code as well as a simple animation sample for each. I particularly like the dropshadow effect in that it's easy to control the direction, depth, and shade of the shadow cast.
