Expression Blend Release Candidate 1 available.

Microsoft made a Release candidate of Expression Blend available for download this week.

In theory, a release candidate is as close as you get to the final release, with an opportunity to fix bugs.  The major features and functionality should all be in place.

I have had a play with Blend and I do like it.  The purpose of Blend is to give you an environment to develop interfaces for .Net Framework 3.0 applications.  A Kind of visual designer for WPF.  The whole vibe around WPF is picking up speed and it really is something for you to look at if you are a serious developer.

I don’t normally join in with Bandwagon jumping but something about WPF and WPF/e has caught my interest.

There are plenty of sample app’s available to kick start your development and get you hooked.  Full info and the download can be found here.
