      For a moment I was like "Wow! They're already talking about MIX 12" Smiley

      Thanks for the ep and looking forward to MVVM Light v4...


      However, I was wondering:

      1. When can we expect v4 to drop?
      2. Would you recommend relying on the Messenger as a means of handling view-specific tasks, or would you rather go with services injection?
      3. And last but not least, how is like to turn 40? Smiley
