F# Silverlight Library Template in Visual Studio 11

If you have played with Visual Studio 11 much, you may have noticed that there isn't a F# Silverlight Library template out-of-the-box. This is presumably due to the fact that the current release of Visual Studio 11 is just a developer preview and there doesn't appear to be a version of F# 3.0 for Silverlight just yet. However, this doesn't stop you from creating Silverlight projects that target F# 2.0 in Visual Studio 11. In order to help you do this, I've created a project template that allows you to create a F# 2.0 Silverlight Library in Visual Studio 11. You can download the VSIX from here.

The following prerequisites exist for using this library:

1. Download and install the VS2011 Preview with F# 3.0 (see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/fsharpteam/archive/2011/09/14/f-3-0-developer-preview-now-available.aspx for more information).

2. Download and install the Microsoft F#, April 2011 CTP from http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=11100
