It seems that Windows Phone 8 will expose the DX11 API,
does anyone know whether Direct2D will be available as well?
Thanks in advance for any comment of information.

They did mention Direct3D11.1 but nothing explicitly about Direct2D. Direct2D is built on top of Direct3D11, so It should be ok, but we will have to wait the SDK this summer in order to be sure.

Is there a place where we should express our concern about the availability of Direct2D on WP 8?
I hardly imagine that, given the fact you mention that D2D is based on DX11, this key part of the graphics stack might not be available on WP8, but since it was not explicitely stated....

On DirectX App forum, but as usual, I doubt that they will give any more details...
