Microsoft "Expression Studio 4, the latest version of Microsoft's design-oriented development tools, was released to manufacturing today. The software is available immediately to MSDN subscribers, with retail availability coming later. The three main components of Expression Studio are Expression Blend, for producing XAML designs for use with both Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation applications; Expression Web, for creating webpages; and Expression Encoder, for encoding and streaming video."

Expression Studio is a nice tool, but I think Microsoft are getting greedy with the pricing. Really, considering they market Expression Blend as "the best way" to do design tasks in WPF and Silverlight, they should be bundling it with Visual Studio. Yet instead they go in the complete opposite direction, coming up with overpriced "Premium" versions that don't offer much new. I need to get Ultimate just for the video converter?!

On the other hand, I can't complain too much since as a student I get it free. Looking forward to it being available for download (hopefully) soon. ;)
