New features in Silverlight 3: Merged Resource Dictionaries, Navigation & Local Messaging

Today I want to write about merged dictionaries, navigation and local messaging in Silverlight 3 RTM.

Merged Resource Dictionaries

A merged resource dictionary enables you to declare the contents of a resource dictionary by referencing an external file.


You can make cool navigation with integration with browser, URI mapping and deep linking  in a few minutes! Default XAML  in Silverlight Navigation Application and usage of UriSourceMapper have been changed since beta.



Local Messaging

Local messaging enables you to create communication channels between multiple Silverlight plug-ins running on a single machine. This enables you to create complex layouts that combine multiple Silverlight-based applications with content based on other technologies. The zip file contains my sample and some cool samples  I have found.
