At the blog of DevExpress you can see a cool preview of their Silverlight controls - AgDataGrid, AgMenu Suite, AgNavBar control, AgLayoutControl Library and AgRichTextEdit control. Some of them are already released and some are to be released, but all of them look really nice and I'm really impatient to see the new ones in action!

Don't hesitate to check out the site Walt Ritscher made in Silverlight for presenting his Shazzam tool. It's a WPF Pixel Shader effect tool and, as Walt wrote, its source code will be soon available on CodePlex. In this post you can find additional info about it.\
