Newsletter for designers and interactive developers - Issue 10
Earlier this month we launched Expression 4, after the official release of Silverlight 4 in April. It’s incredible to think how far we have come with these technologies and tooling in just 3 years!

One simple request to you this time: take a look at the features highlighted in this newsletter and get started.

Download the Expression Studio 4 trial and don't forget the self-paced Expression Blend and Silverlight training materials found on .toolbox to get you started. And in case you need additional inspiration, we've expanded the Expression Gallery to include a Pattern Library, add-ins and extensions for Expression Web and Expression Encoder, and more!

Read on and create exciting new experiences.
