Silverlight 4 Tooling for VS2010 Arrives

Microsoft today announced that it had released the final version of its Silverlight 4 Tools for Visual Studio 2010. Silverlight 4 offers extensive new features, including support for out-of-browser execution, local file system access and improved performance over Silverlight 3. The shipping version of Silverlight 4 was released on May 13, at the Visual Studio 2010 launch event in Las Vegas.

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 included a beta version of the Silverlight 4 tooling, but the pre-release tooling was removed from the release candidate and shipping versions of the IDE. The delivery of Silverlight 4 Tooling for Visual Studio 2010 completes the platform development support story for Visual Studio 2010, which also saw significant updates to tooling for platforms like Windows Azure and SharePoint.

Silverlight 4 Tools for Visual Studio 2010 can be downloaded at http://www.silverlight.net/getstarted/.
