Release Notes

This release is targetting both Silverlight 3 and Silverlight 4.
People that are still using Silverlight 3 can still download a Silverlight 3 compiled version.

A demonstration on how to set the ToolTip content to a property of the DataContext object is included in the test application.
It also contains a demonstration of how to use the library from both within XAML and in code behind, through explicit coding or through binding (C#).
