Here is what's new since Beta 11.4:

  • New "Silverlight Migration Wizard"! (see screenshots below) (it can be accessed from the "Tool" menu of the Visual Studio IDE) (it only helps to prepare the projects, folders, and files: the rest of the migration still requires manual work, as explained in the Silverlight Migration Guide)
  • Support for Nullable types in WCF and by the XmlSerializer
  • Support for "KeyEventArgs.PlatformKeyCode" to get the key code as reported by the browser
  • Improved DateTime support and serialization
  • Improved the reliability of the "Storyboard.Completed" event
  • Improved the reliability of Dictionary<> and HashSet2<> when adding and then removing a reference type
  • Improved support for Nullable.Equals, including when the value is null, such as in: ((int?)null).Equals(45)
  • Fixed an issue where default(DateTime) was equal to 01/01/1970 instead of 01/01/0001
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when "DropShadowEffect.Opacity" was out of range


Here are some screenshots of the new Silverlight Migration Wizard, which can be accessed from the "Tool" menu of the Visual Studio IDE:
