Any thoughts on how to use the transitions on changing tabs in a tabcontrol?

Hi Neil,

Sure, our TransitionPresenter control inherits ContentPresenter.  If you retemplate a WPF TabControl and use TransitionPresenter in place of its ContentPresenter, then you'll be able to add animations on content changes.
