- New control CustomMessageBox
- New control Rating
- New transition effects
- Updated control templates to more closely match the 1st party experience
- Shortened the product name to just "Windows Phone Toolkit"
- Moved to a pure NuGet or source distribution model
Given how popular and useful NuGet is along with the fact that it's included in Visual Studio 2012 the MSI-based installer for the toolkit has been deprecated in favor of installation via NuGet or compiling directly from source.
There is a full featured sample application that is checked in that shows the usage of all the Windows Phone Toolkit controls. It's highly recommended that you download the latest source and run the sample app to find examples of using the controls.
