I upgraded from AvalonDock prior to Xceed to the new AvalonDock and it worked well. Just had to change a single namespace. I also used the previous Xceed toolkit and upgraded this without any manual change required. Thank you!

I can use the dll in general. However, I have a problem with BusyIndicator. Based on Usage as follows: Add namespace: xmlns:xctk="" Default Settings: <xctk:BusyIndicator IsBusy="True" > <ContentControl Style="{StaticResource SampleContent}"/> </xctk:BusyIndicator> I got the error message: "The name 'BusyIndicator' does not exist in the Namespace "".' One of the possible reasons why could be that the BusyIndicator was moved out of the .dll. I wish the author or someone else would help.
