I thought Silverlight 1.1 was just around the corner...
What's your definition of "just around the corner"?
1.1 is an alpha. It doesn't even have the basics like textbox controls, radio buttons etc. At this week's UK Mix Scott Guthrie said the next milestone would only be about fixing the plumbing and so probably wouldn't get a public release so we're some way off
1.1 being "ready for prime time". Remember that Silverlight 1.1 support in VS 2008 ships as a "refresh" some time after VS 2008 itself goes RTM.
