Have you heard? The guys at Redmond impressed the world once again! .Net 3.5 SP1 is now Beta…. If you didn’t already, I would suggest that you read this brilliant post from Tim Sneath to get more info on what’s new in WPF. Today, I wanted to experiment a bit with the new Effects that were included in the SP1 Beta. These effects are the same as the BitmapEffects that were previously in WPF. One can also say that these are the replacement for the BitmapEffects. Why?
