i don't think design will ever be a fullfeatured photo editing app. it's meant to be more of an "illustrator for the web" ... use illustrator if you don't like design.

this version seems to squash a few pull your hair out bugs and adds some nice "states" editing (e.g. mouseover, click, etc.) for assets in wpf and sl 2 projects.

getting better. still has a long way to go though.

I give it a 1 only because of the limited possibilities of Expression Design.

If I go for Expression, then it is for the whole package.
And Expression Design does not compare to other Photo-Editing software yet (by far not).
The available tools are just too limited and inadequate.

Therefore no Expression from me for the whole bunch.

Windows Presentation Foundation = WPF.
If you don't know what WPF is, you probably don't know what Expression Blend is.

(so I wonder why people do rate this app??)

Expression Blend is a Microsofts XAML designer for .NET FrameWork 3.0 (with CRL 2.0).

The XAML generated projects are compatible with next gen Visual Studio "Orcas" and WPF/E CRL (yes, the WPF/E CRL is a light version of CRL 2.0).

My Rate is 4, the XML design suitable with FrameWork 3.0 WPF & Web apps is greate, but this should be a part of Visual Studio for developers (Quiz to Microsoft: Guess who's creating all User Interfaces before Art Directors get their hands on applications?)

Initially wowed me... but now it crashes with a NullReferenceException every time I run it. It's a CTP I know but... something this big should've been addressed. Or at least it should've been trapped and more gracefully handled.
