    I've got an application in Silverlight 2 that has not been generally deployed yet. Should I upgrade it to Silverlight 3 before release? I realise the answer is probably 'it depends', but would be grateful for any input. There are some Silverlight 3 features that I'd like to use at some point, but are there any downsides to moving now? (e.g. stability of development environment, support for controls, whether many users have the right runtime installed yet etc) I assume I need to use VS2010 for development? (Edit - actually, I see I can develop with VS2008 still.)

    Thanks for any insights, James.

    There are many changes in SL 3.  I upgraded to SL 3 and now my 2.0 project is not dipslaying the Telerik controls.  Does Telerik Rad controls not support SL 3?

    Hi Hector,

    Telerik controls does support SL3 - more info here:

    Hi James,

    I strongly suggest you to use Silverlight 3 once we release our official SL3 compatible service pack (next week) - currently our SL3 binaries can be found as latest internal build. Silverlight 3 is already pushed through Windows Update and most probably will be adopted fully very soon - you can still use SL 2 (SL3 is backward compatible) however you will miss all new features like RIA services and many more.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
