This is the first time I've seen a post like this for WPF so I'm not sure if its a new or established thing. Either way, please keep it up. Very useful!

@PETE N and others: Thank you for your feedback. Yes, we are expanding this practice after similar digests were highly rated by Frameworks (XAF & XPO) customers (example) for a long time.
To this end, I have the following questions: 
  1. What do you think about having "What's New in Documentation" updates for each major platform (XAF example digest)?
  2. How could we do better in our blogs (for instance, content you would prefer more, frequency, etc.)?

Extremely helpful - thanks a lot for this! I immediately made use of the described loading decorator approach.
