    The Discussion

      Are there plans to implement socket support for Windows Phone 7 at some time in the future, or will they be left out altogether? It would be difficult to develop P2P games for example, if socket support is left out.

      IDWMaster, sockets support has not been announced/committed.  It is a very common ask, so I am sure it will be prioritized highly..  Unfortunately we are just getting done with the current release and have not completed planning for the next releases, so nothing to announce at this point..

      Doh!  Why aren't all the Silverlight 4 embedded players support pinned full-screen.  For us multi-monitor users out here, it is very annoying to have the video go out of full screen mode when we try to do something on the other monitor.

      The .docx in the "paper and samples" download is corrupt?
