Reviews for this release

I happily use several of these controls in a couple of released projects. This toolkit shines on it's own right, but is even more praiseworthy when compared to the glacial pace of WPF development and the abandoned WPF Toolkit. Fantastic work!

Fantastic. These are top notch controls that are very useful in almost any WPF app beyond hello world. Keep up the good work!

Pretty good. I love that the up and down buttons repeat if you hold them, but this really needs a way to prevent users from typing invalid characters into the textboxes of the UpDown's. For example nothing stops me from typing 'abc' into the IntegerUpDown.
