Silverlight 5 Release Candidate is now Available - Download Silverlight 5 RC

Silverlight 5 Release Candidate is now available from Microsoft. They just released the RC build to the public. You will be able to download it freely from Microsoft Download Center. 

In this post, I am going to share the link of the Silverlight 5 RC Tools for Visual Studio 2010. Download it and start building your application. Make sure that it's not in "Go-Live" license, so you can't deploy the Silverlight applications built with this release to production. This build is just for the developers to give the developers a chance to test their applications before they release the final version.

Silverlight delivers the richest set of capabilities available to developers today through a Web-browser plug-in. Announced last December and shipping later this year, Silverlight 5 makes further advances in media, application development and user experience, adding over 40 new features. The Silverlight 5 RC provides developers their first opportunity to start exploring these new capabilities.
