Designing your Silverlight or WPF apps in Illustrator?

Mike Swanson has published a new version of his excellent Adobe Illustrator plugin that allows you to generate XAML versions of your AI files for use as vector graphics in WPF and Silverlight.

I’ve used this plugin myself in the past to convert the product logo’s you see in Delphi Prism‘s “Oxygene Logo” sample (which, ironically, shows the old Chrome 1.0 logo, thus bridging the gap of 5 years of product ;) and the Hydra Delphi/WPF sample that can be seen in the screenshot at

It’s good to see the plugin finally work with the Mac version of Illustrator CS4, as well. After all, seriously, who really uses Illustrator on Windows? ;)
