Silverlight 2 Beta 2

Is there an ETA on the Silverlight Blueprint for Sharepoint compatible with Siverlight 2 beta 2 ?

I tried some experiments myself form the beta 1 version ... and got builds with VS2008 + .Net 3.5 SP1 for S2b2 with no error / warning.
But after deployement the webpart on MOSS 2007 postSP1 seems not so happy despite web.config and MIME type upgrade to beta 2 ... Some import error, or just blank webparts, are common see for me.
So i'll wait your release.

I'm trying to deploy the most basic SL.SharePoint.HelloSilverlight2 demo, but there appears to be a
versioning issue at hand. I am running Siverlight 2 beta 2 w/ VS2008 on Windows 2008 Server.

On first compile there is an error with the line: silverlightControl.Version = "2.0" in HelloSilverlight2.cs

    System.Web.UI.SilverlightControls.Silverlight' does not contain a definition for 'Version' and no extension method 'Version' accepting a first argument of type 
    'System.Web.UI.SilverlightControls.Silverlight' could be found.

Good Day
I am also experiencing the silverlightControl.Version problem. Running Windows server 2003, MOSS 2007, Siverlight 2 beta 2 installation.
I commented out the line giving the error and re-compiled the solution. Then I copied the resulting SL.XAML.HelloSilverlight2.xap file into the setup project's corresponding ClientBin folder. Then ran setup, and activated feature. When I now try to add the web part to a page I get the following message: 
Silverlight BluePrint for SharePoint: Hello Silverlight 2 Web Part: Method not found: 'Void System.Web.UI.SilverlightControls.Silverlight.set_Version(System.String)'.

I am having the same problem.  I'm guessing since the silverlight 2 release will hopefully be out this month, they will just make some examples with that.  I don't think it's worth trying to make beta 2 work with sharepoint 2007.  I would wait till the release comes out.

For all those with the version issue.

Silverlight 2 beta 1 had a Version property. This property doesn't exist anymore in beta 2. You should set the MinimumVersion property to "2.0.30523".
