Silverlight Toolkit for WP7 getting an August-Mango refresh [Developers]

Good news for devs out there, it's just been announced that the Silverlight Toolkit for Windows Phone will be getting a refresh sometime in August.

This will be the Mango SDK 7.1 refresh, giving developers just a few extra weeks to tweak their Silverlight extensions before the Marketplace starts accepting Mango apps. No word on the exact changes the new toolkit will contain, but we bet it will have some goodies in there that devs will want to get their hands on ASAP.

We'll keep you posted if any more info comes our way...
