It's Alive! - WriteableBitmapEx 1.0 for WinRT Metro Style, WPF, Windows Phone and Silverlight

After a few preview versions, I'm happy to announce that the final version of WriteableBitmapEx 1.0 is now available.
A couple of weeks ago we added official WPF support and WinRT Metro Style support. With that WriteableBitmapEx is now available for 4 platforms: WPF, Silverlight, Silverlight for Windows Phone and Metro Style WinRT .NET.
You can download the binaries here or via the NuGet package. The packages contain the WriteableBitmapEx binaries. All samples and the source code can be found in the repository.

Since the last WinRT preview version, a new WinRT sample was added, a couple of bugs were fixed and a new FromStrean method was added which loads an image stream into a WriteableBitmap. The project was also updated for the Windows 8 Release Preview. Please read this blog post for more details (about the WinRT version).
