Expression Blend Preview For Silverlight 5

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Few days ago an updated version of Expression Blend Preview for Silverlight 5 has been released (download it from here). It provides support for creating Silverlight 5 and Silverlight 5 SketchFlow projects only (for previous version of Silverlight or to design WPF applications, Expression Blend 4 is required).

This release can be installed side-by-side with Expression Blend 4 and it's identical to the previously released Expression Blend Preview for Silverlight 5. It contains just three changes:

  • The expiration date has been extended to June 30, 2013.
  • It contains a go-live license that allows designer/developers to distribute the software created with this release
  • Silverlight 5 SDK that is installed with Blend has been updated to Silverlight 5 RTM.

Before installing this release, any previous version of Blend Preview for Silverlight 5 (or Blend SDK Preview for Silverlight 5) must be removed.
