    "Before end of summer" has come and passed and Silverlight devs are starving for it with it's abundance of bug fixes.

    As far as I know, summer traditionally ends in a couple of weeks Smiley

    And the least they could do is put out a release candidate.

    Or change the get silverlight image to show it's a beta and warn people when they click through rather than just try to dump beta software on people

    Sometimes Scott's posts are slightly ahead of the official announcements.

    We just did a large internal project for Microsoft, and as the Silverlight front-end guy I'd say around 20% of the work I had to do was bug workarounds using the Beta 2.  :/

    But then I build this thing in 5 days...hehe

    Last I read, Scott Guthrie was on vacation still -- he's a new dad -- so don't expect activity on his blog for another few days or so.

    Last week he posted that he had one week left.. So I think he is "Back" but i'd give him a week to get up to speed and have a chnace to go thu his stack of stuff from 6 weeks off.

    What really surprises me is that everybody "knows" that the PDC conference is coming in a month or so, and Keynote speakers always need something big to announce. You can bet-your-bottom-dollar that Silverlight will be officially released at PDC, or we will be told it will RTM in 4 weeks. The same can be said for Internet Explorer, though due to the Chromium phenomenon, I suspect it could be December or the start of 2009 before it is released. Oslo will be another huge announcement and the development of MESH.

    Charles offered a temporal valedictory upon the commencement of his holiday. As PaoloM has already intimated, expect things to be quiet insofar as announcements and Channel 9 because of PDC.

    August 21st? In Vancouver, maybe. Here in Israel it only stops getting ridiculously hot around November.
