This new service pack brings a number of improvements and fixes.
You now have the option to disable the Telerik StyleManager and to style controls using implicit styles (i.e., Style without the x:Key attribute). There are a number of advantages to using implicit styles, including:
- Custom themes are easier
- Basing styles on themes is easier
- Assemblies are smaller
- Improved Blend support
For more on using implicit styles with the new release, please see this Silverlight help file or this WPF article.
This Service Pack also brings support for Visual Studio 11.
