Expression Blend add-in that adds IntelliSense for editing XAML files.
Extract the contents of installation archive in your Blend 2.5 installation folder (typically
%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Expression\Blend 2.5 June 2008 Preview
Run Blend from the Blend.bat file that was extracted into Blend's installation folder. (The only way to run an add-in in Blend is to use a command line argument: -addin: path
the_addin - in our case -
You can also create a shortcut to Blend and pass this argument.)
You should have
Blend 2.5 June Preview (Version 2.1.1535)
- available for free download
. The addin
did not run on Expression Blend 2.0
No support for custom namespace types and custom attached properties.
Currently the Silverlight support is not accurate, because it is using the WPF XML schema for IntelliSense information.

I can't believe this isn't included in 2.0 out of the box. So lame.

Yes this is really lame. Now we have to wait for Blend 3, BUT you cannot run Beta 3 with Blend 2 or Silverlight 2. Tanks MS!! I love switching back and forth between VS and Blend all day long. Very productive.
