Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 and WPF designer

After a week of testing Visual Studio 2010, I think that the integrated WPF Designer is not so stable… I’ve successfully converted all my projects to the new version and all works good. However, when I work directly on the XAML editor on a WPF form, sometimes if a designer error occours, Visual Studio crashes. This problem occours expecially on two projects where I’ve used the WPF Toolkit. Someone has experienced problems like this?

And so today I’m aboard… I’ve converted lots of my projects and the conversion process works like a charm… now all is ready on the new environment: Wonderful…

Yesterday at the Sharepoint Conference keynote Microsoft has shared lots of interesting news about the future Sharepoint 2010 release (Beta version in November, official release for the first half of 2010).
