Silverlight February 2011 Release [Developers]

Today, the February 2011 release of the Silverlight for Windows Phone Toolkit was made available. A few newly added controls, including the tilt effect and performance progress bar are present in this update that saves developers picking them up while working the finishing touches to their apps.

See the video above for an overview of the additional features, which appear to be intriguing for even the non-tech savvy personnel - come on, you can't tell me you watched that video and didn't want to over-use the tilt effect?

You can read more on this release from an article by Jeff Wilcox and download it at Silverlight Codeplex (opens in new tab). All in all, it's all fun and games for developers really.

  • I'm going back and adding tilt EVERYWHERE muhahahaha :PAhh.. all my hard work to create my own LongListSelector in my "Mobile Bartender" app is wasted *sigh*
  • Microsoft is really taking the legwork out of creating a UI rich application and letting the developers focus on supplying the ideas and the data. Kudos, Microsoft!
