It’s been a long wait but finally, Kaxaml supports the latest version of Silverlight. For those who have been waiting for a long time – I say sorry. Kaxaml is a free XAML code editor for Silverlight and WPF.
In this release, you won’t find many changes except for the changes with Silverlight. So far with Silverlight, there are some issues that I haven’t yet been able to work through. Support for images for Silverlight 2intellisense is limited to the Silverlight 1.0 spec. Another feature that is often requested on the side of WPF is the ability to load external assemblies.
It’s definitely on my radar and there is still a bit of work to be done in this regard. Hopefully, in the next few months, we can get an RTM release that supports this. Also, a small change to the about box that is worth a mention. Thanks must go to Matt Ward who authored the text editor I use in Kaxaml. He built it and as a part of the Sharp Develop project, it’s an amazing alternative IDE to Visual Studio.
If you have any fresh ideas on any Silverlight issues, let me know, I’d love to hear from you.
