WPF charting package?

I already asked this question and, perhaps too hastily, declared it answered.The problem is that the answer I got was not correct in that it enabled very nice charting in .net applications, but DOES NOT run in WPF. So, I'm still stuck.

I need to write a program that is WPF compatible. I will be showing stock prices, OHLC bars, Candelsticks and line graphs of vartious indicators.

So far, I have looked at packages from amcharts and Telerik. (and now, .Net 4.0, which does not have charting controls for WPF).) Before I get too deep into this, I'd like to know whether there is a better package to be using.

I found WPF Toolkit on Codeplex. But, seriously, it appears to have not been touched in two years. Either this is an exceptionally stable package or it's hopelessly out of date.

To be fair, I haven't downloaded it yet - still trying to get over the shock of the other chart controls not working in WPF.

Any suggestions woiuld be welcome.

Well, I had hoped for an actual answer, but this pointed me to a good place to find one, and that's fine with me. For anyone who cares, I decided on SciChart. It is smokin' fast and reasonably priced The developer is friendly and responsive.
