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...

Fantastic news this, the Silverlight toolkit is very important, it provides some excellent controls where the standard SDK fails, and is Open Source so you can take certain concepts and re-use them in your own apps
This!I won't be able to submit any of my apps without this on 22nd of August...
