Download Expression Blend Preview for Silverlight 5
Silverlight 5 is here and some are saying this may be the
last version of Silverlight. But it does not mean that Microsoft teams have
stopped building other tools supporting Silverlight 5. Expression
Studio is one of the complementary tool to build and design Silverlight and
WPF applications and current version of Expression Studio is 4 that has
components including Expression
Expression Blend is used to design user interfaces (UI) for
Silverlight and WPF applications with XAML. I have designed so many
applications using Expression Blend. Expression Blend can be similar to Adobe
Fireworks. I use both of these tools when designing my graphics and user
interfaces. Check out my blog Expression
Blend 4 vs Adobe Firefox CS5 for see how these two are different. If you want to know what Blend can do for
you, check out my blog What
Expression Blend can do for you.
Microsoft just released Expression Blend Preview for
Silverlight 5 that provides support for creating Silverlight 5 and Silverlight
5 SketchFlow projects. Expression Blend Preview for Silverlight 5 installs
side-by-side with Expression Blend 4.
You can download Expression Blend Preview for Silverlight 5 here. I am
sure it will be called Expression Blend 5 and will probably be a part of
Expression Studio 5.
