Silverlight 2 is not far from reality! With the first RC coming just months after the beta 2 release and promises of a full release coming soon we can start migrating existing beta 2 code to RC0 which is supposed to be compatible with the actual release. The announcement is posted on Scott Gu's blog here. I am excited to read that some of the major changes are making WPF and Silverlight. Also, they have promised a bunch of new controls which will make Silverlight more control rich than WPF (with some exception).
My computer is still messed up from the Beta 2 release so I'm hoping that installing the RC0 release will fix some things up -- I'll post on that later.
