Traditional and Extended MVVM API
Traditional API: All data-aware controls provide properties helping you bind them to item sources on ViewModels, specify the selected item and data templates. The ICollectionView interface is supported by all list-bound controls (Data Grid, Tree List, Navigation Bar, etc.)
Extended API: The DevExpress WPF controls provide additional properties to populate other collections in the MVVM-style. For instance, you can populate a column and summary collections in the Data Grid, a bar collection for the Bar Manager, an item collection in the Layout Control, etc.
The WPF Subscription offers you a dedicated library to create complete MVVM applications. The major benefits of the DevExpress MVVM library are the independent parts, can be used separately or with other third-party MVVM libraries.

Smart Tags for DevExpress WPF controls: Allow you to set and bind common settings including MVVM-aware properties (ItemsSource, SelectedItem, Command, CommandParameter, etc.) at design time. They also help you modify the layout of controls (for instance, add a column to the Grid Control and BarItem to the RibbonControl). Properties can be bound to ViewModels via a dedicated Binding editor.
Smart Tags for standard WPF controls (available for Visual Studio 2012): Allow you to set/bind commonly used properties via a special Binding dialog (for instance, set a Window's DataContext to a ViewModel, or bind a control's property to an object in a ViewModel).
