Silverlight 4 Beta slides & code from Web-Fu! event

Yesterday I had a great time at Microsoft's Web-Fu! event in Belgrade, Serbia, and at the same time it was an opportunity to talk about what's new in Silverlight 4 Beta. During the talk, I demoed a couple of interesting things:
I also showed a little demo application which demonstrates some of the new features coming in Silverlight 4:
  • New RichTextArea control
  • DataGrid improvements
  • New databinding improvements
  • Out of browser improvements: notification (toast), HtmlBrowser control
  • Making Silverlight speech using COM Interop
  • etc.
Here are Silverlight 4 Beta slides, and the code for demo application. Hope you'll find it useful.
