    It's another Thursday, so by now you are anxiously awaiting the next installment of XAMLflix. Today we're diving into the navigation controls a bit to bring you RadBreadCrumb, a unique control allowing for an experience very similar to the explorer bar that you find in windows. Complete with the ability to display icons, a built-in history journal, and easy support for hierarchical navigation, RadBreadCrumb offers an intuitive way to easily navigate structured data while taking up a minimum of screen real estate.

    Watch the show with Erik Porter and Nathan Heskew on Channel 9

    This week we spoke to Erik Porter and Nathan Heskew, the developers of the popular Twitter client for Windows Phone, Rowi. They walked us through their app and gave us a lot of insight into what goes into building a world class Windows Phone application.

    Here are some links to related information..

    Over the last several weeks some of you have reported slowdowns or delays in the app approval and publishing process. You’ve also said App Hub feels slower. We’ve been investigating, and today I want to explain why this is happening and more importantly what we’re doing about it.

    This is the first in a series on our evolving Marketplace service that I plan to write in the months ahead.

    To get started developing games for Windows Phone you need to have the Windows Phone 7.1 SDK installed. You can get it here. Once you’ve installed this you’ll also want the 7.1.1 update, which you can get here. The update requires the 7.1 SDK to be installed first.

    If you’re installing on Windows 8, check out my post about installing the Windows Phone development environment on Windows 8.

    In this post we’ll start creating a new XNA game, and begin with the most visible step, and the one people thing of first when they think of game development. We’ll draw something to the screen.

    One of the problems of the LongListSelector in the current release of the Silverlight for Windows Phone Toolkit comes to the surface in MVVM scenarios. You often bind the SelectedItem to some property on the viewmodel so you can have access to the selected item. This works fine for a ListBox, but on the LongListSelector it doesn't work.

    The problem is that the SelectedItem property on the LongListSelector is not a dependency property, and is therefore not bindable. The solution to this problem is of course to change it to a dependency property. But if you don't want to change the source and recompile there is also another way to add this.

    I find that I often run into the need of separating a collection of items into several collections just so I can bind them to multiple listboxes, for example a list of sessions spanning several tracks and each track is shown in his own listbox in a pivotitem. To get this done you can start by adding multiple collections to your viewmodel and divide the items there. However this makes your viewmodel very big in a very short time. A better way to do this is using CollectionViewSource items in XAML. Let me show you how.

    First thing I did was building a demo class existing out of a title and a description, these two properties will be shown in the listbox later on. A third property is the one we’ll use to filter the data, here’s the completed class.

    Read the original post at CNet.

    Intel is offering more specifics on the features of future Windows 8 tablet at a conference in Beijing. It's a laudable goal, but can Intel make it happen this year?

    Underneath the glass will be beat an Atom Z2760 "Clover Trail" chip: dual-core capable with "burst mode" (for quick bursts of performance when needed) and Hyperthreading -- the latter allows a dual-core chip to behave in quad-core-like fashion in some cases.

    I’ve just added 10 great customers’ apps to the Telerik Windows Phone Showcase Gallery.

    Some of them are already doing great on the Marketplace, such as for example:

    Free Music Cloud at # 9 in the music + video / free category

    This article compares Silverlight and KnockoutJS (http://knockoutjs.com/) by looking at the implementation of the same application with both frameworks.  During this comparison we’ll see that there are a great many similarities between the two frameworks, with the same concepts appearing in each. However, the execution / realisation of these conceptsis quite different. Finally, we’ll look at the all-important question: "Which is better, Silverlight or Knockout?"

    Let the battle commence .
