Windows Client Developer Roundup for 4/19/2010

Pete Brown - 19 April 2010

This is Windows Client Developer roundup #20.

The Windows Client Developer Roundup aggregates information of interest to Windows Client Developers, including WPF, Surface, Windows 7, XNA, Windows Forms, Silverlight and Windows Phone. If you have something interesting you've done or have run across, please send me the URL and brief description via the contact link on my blog.

Of course, the big news items this week were the releases. Here's what was released this week:

  • Visual Studio 2010
  • .NET 4, including WPF 4, ASP.NET 4, MVC 2, WCF Data Services 4/OData. Oh, and MEF is in the box now :)
  • Silverlight 4
  • Silverlight 4 Tools RC2 for Visual Studio
  • WCF RIA Services RC
  • Expression Blend 4 RC
  • The Microsoft Surface toolkit for Windows touch (beta)

One caveat: If you're working with Windows Phone 7 Dev, do not upgrade to the release of VS2010 yet. Hold off until the wp7dev team releases a new build of the tools.
