I raise this question, so we will have an official guidelines for updating previous DLLs that are in our other projects (on development machine) and also the ones that have been deployed.

Let's say I had created a project with Telerik SL B1 and I reference two dlls. Which will eventually ends up in my \bin\debug directory and also get built into my XAP and then the XAP gets deployed.

Since there was no installer for B1, I basically deleted the Telerik directory that had all the dlls and samples and doc, and installed beta 2.

In order for all the previous projects that I created using Telerik DLLs, to be updated, would you say that I should go to each debug directory and replace the dlls with the new dll from your Binaries directory OR just the fact that in my references I'm pointing to the same Binaries directory, VS and/or Blend would automatically update the old DLLs when rebuilding?

Next step after updating the DLLs, is to build each project to get new XAP and then deploy each XAP to web.

..Ben

UPDATE: I think I just learned the hard lesson. As long as you have the new DLLs in the Telerik|Binaries and you do a rebuild inb your project, it automatically replaces the old DLLs in the project.
However, I'm having problem with Tab control in Blend not rendering and I can't go back to my old dlls, since they were replaced ;-)
