.NET RIA Services July CTP

After much work, our team just released the July CTP of .NET RIA Services. We're releasing this CTP in step with the big Silverlight 3 release, as trumpeted on ScottGu's SL3 blog post here. As mentioned in Scott's post, "The new .NET RIA Services framework (which now has a go-live license) can be used to easily build multi-tier data applications that span the client and server. " If you're interested in building rich multi-tier Silverlight applications you should check out the framework we're building. Some relevant links:

My intention going forward is to use this blog to explain framework features, discuss design points for new and existing features, as well as to share sample code.
