I downloaded the toolkit samples. They have references to the team's worksite and don't seem to have all the files.

Thank you so much, great toolkit, but it has some shortcoming (f.e. ListPicker's IsOpen property) and bug yet (f.e. ListPicker's Background property). I like that we get the source codes too, it is very interesting. Can't wait for new controls and fixes! Edit: oops, I've just looked at the Source tab, and I see that you have been uploaded updates. You deserve the 5 star instead of 4. :)

Great tools, really useful, and the new release had some long-awaited controls. A custom MessageBox would be cool at the next update:)

What's wrong with the last Silverlight Toolkit for Windows Phone ? Where is Microsoft.Silverlight.Testing.dll ?

Thank you for a great toolkit. We quickly adopted the new page transitions for our tools. We’ve released an updated versions of our help engine and authoring tools for WP7 with added support for the toolkit page transitions.
