As the Silverlight team gets ready to the lunch of Silverlight 1.0 RC in a couple of weeks, Tim Sneath et team want to make sure that before it hits the road, and the masses, you will be prepared and will make the changes to your application so that it won't break once its out... why is that?
Well, as Microsoft's Joe Stegman points out in this post, there are a few changes in the Silverlight 1.0 RC API that might make your application break, although rest assure that moving forward this API is locked so you won't have to go thru this process again.
Even though there is no preview of the RC release as for you to go and test your applications as of now, this guys have put together a small zip file with some reference material and resources, based on Tim Sneath's post, this package includes:
- A new silverlight.js file that detects both the beta and the RC version;
- A breaking changes document that highlights differences between the beta and RC;
- An updated Visual Studio template that demonstrates the correct way to embed the new control;
- A EULA that governs legal usage of the above items.
Which pretty much will guide your way between the RC bits hits their way out the oven.

Update: Fixed the zip file reference.
