Release Notes for March2009 Release?

Apr 29, 2009 at 4:18 PM
Hi all,

We are using the earlier release of the grid and are planning testing the March09 version in our solution.  (It appears that it may resolve an eventing issue).

Is there a full list of release note for the March09 wpftoolkit?  I used the advanced search on issue tracker an didn't see any associated with the March Release.

Yes, please if ther is a full list I could really use it.

I just released a very sophisticated real-time app using the January 09 release of the datagrid.

Should I upgrade to the March 09 release ASAP?  One issue in particular that I see is scrollintoview sometimes bomb, and I think it is because I have deferred scrolling enabled and also a collection view getting updated on the UI thread by a background worker that the drids items source is bound to.  I had to remove the automatic scroll to the top of the list functionality and it is woking ok for the time being.
