  • Why is it that RIA Services is still in RC state included into Silverlight 4 Tools released recently? And when will be released?

  • figuerresfiguerres ???

    Ria has been a bit behind the SIlverlight timetable all along, given that this is an "RC" i would imaging that we will have the final in a month or less as long as it goes well.... we need to kick it around and see if any bugs fall out.... if they do send em back to MS for disposal Smiley
