CWA Client with Silverlight 2 beta 2

I have been able to download Microsoft® Silverlight™ 2 Software Development Kit Beta 2 Documentation. And took a look at something what was really important for me in building a communicator web access with Silverlight 2.

The first thing I looked at was the support for Headers in the HttpWebResponse Class. And too bad it still isn't in there :-(.

For everybody asking why this is such a big deal. This would have made it possible to use silverlight HttpWebRequest/ HttpWebResponse and no need any more for the browsers / ActiveX XMLHttpRequest. So hosting Silverlight controls who access our CWA server still have to run on our CWA server :-( and we still have to develop our silverlight CWA client on a CWA server directly.

What is good is that Silverlight 2 beta 2 now has a tabbed control.
