sure enough as i told the denver visual studio user group last night that the only reason i was still running visual studio 2008 beta 2 was because the tools had not been updated yet.  check my email later...they are updated :-).

the silverlight tools for alpha have been updated to work with visual studio 2008 release version (now available).  you can download the updated bits here

i'm headed up to redmond for the silverlight firestarter event on thursday and maybe to heckle jesse a bit :-).  if you are going to be in town, drop me a line (my number is on my contact page).  i'm not sure what we are doing thursday night, but i'm sure it will involve something with my comrade jason.

Tim, did you test the latest tools for alpha? Because I did and they didn't work. The same old "The project ... file cannot be opened" which I got on VS 2008 RC.

Tim; The problem is that there is no Blend2 update for VS2008 RTM
