Silverlight 2.0 RTW

Sorry to be quite so long.  We’re releasing and it’s been quite exciting around here.  However, I just HAD to post this about the Silverilght 2.0 RTW release that came out today.  If you’ve been using SL2 Beta 2 in your sites, you’ll be very interested in this.
If you have any users at all that were running SL Beta 2, you’ve already found out the browsers running the new RTW bits are having issues with your site.  You will need to update your site’s type tag from type="application/x-silverlight-2-b2" to type="application/x-silverlight-2".   Moroney has a more detailed explaination and it’s a quick read.
Also, you will have to recompile your SL controls with VS2008 SP1
I’m sure there is a way to support both, but hey, a Beta is a Beta.  It wasn’t intended to be permanent.
Now, let’s see what you can do with this fantastic update!!!!
Happy Coding!
