Release Notes

Based on the powerful Box2D engine together with the easy to use features and powerful API of Farseer Physics Engine. See the full list of differences between Box2D and Farseer Physics Engine 3.0 here: Documentation

This release does not support XNA 4.0. XNA 4.0 introduced some breaking changes that means you will have to change some files in order for the release to compile. The current version (FPE 3.1) in the source control does support XNA 4.0.

Cons: Featured examples do not integrate with XNA 4.0, documentation online is lacking, and not backwards compatible with Farseer 2.1.3. Pros: great stuff once you get around these :)

I'm sure that this thing is amazing from the samples i've seen on the internet and I couldn't wait to learn to use it. But on the XNA sample pack nothing builds properly in XNA 4.0 so it is very tricky to learn how to use it. The BOX2D documentation just does not cut the mustard. Looking forward to some documentation for FARSEER 3.0 and working sample packs!

Vertex declarations design patterns have changed in 4.0. The current Farseer DEMO project will not work in XNA 4.0. The Assembly's code base needs to be updated to include the new XNA 4.0 effect.CurrentTechnique.Passes[0].Apply(); DrawStuff(); instead of : XNA 3.x effect.CurrentTechnique.Passes[0].End(); effect.End(); If you change the exception errors in the demo it will work.

I couldn't get anything to build. Could you put up some binary packages and post the silverlight versions somewhere?
