    Silverlight 5 features may (an in my opinion, will likely) appear with the next Windows Phone update as well as the update of the SDK.  Just as with Silverlight 4, not every feature/class of Silverlight 5 will be available in the Phone version.  If you are looking to use a feature in Silverlight 4 or 5 on the phone, check the online MSDN documentation on Silverlight.  Those pages include icons showing what platforms the feature is available on.  

    Do not expect early word on features coming in these forums from Microsoft either.  When new features/releases are available, they will publish them on their news pages, which will likely include the front page of the App-Hub.
