Silverlight 2 is definitely getting closer. The RC0 has just been released, with an aligned VS tool and Blend release. Blend 2.5 Preview is now incorporated into Blend 2.0 SP, so 2.5 preview versions have to be uninstalled. There will be no Blend 2.5.
This RC version of Silverlight is for developers only, end-users are not automatically updated to this version.
