Dotway.WPF - A library with WPF controls, effects and panels

A first version of a WPF library has been published at CodePlex. It contains custom controls, pixel shader effects and custom panels. More functionality will be added later. Go to the project site and download source code or only the libraries. You can also download and try the sample application. Example of controls: color picker, editable slider, grayscale effect, pixelate effect, interaction controls, halftoning effect, a auto fitted wrap panel and more.
The sample application with a custom WPF control, a color picker much like the one in Expression Blend.
