SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

microsoft-silverlight The Silverlight 4 version delivers hundreds of features and controls that, when combined with the continued innovation in Microsoft’s world-class tools for designers and developers Microsoft Visual Studio and Microsoft Expression Blend present the leading edge in rapid, powerful application development. With printing support, rich reporting and charting, and integration with back-end systems and server products including Microsoft SharePoint, Silverlight is ready for business.

Silverlight 4 delivers a full suite of powerful capabilities to business application developers, bringing the best-of-breed .NET platform to browser-based experiences. Silverlight provides an ideal platform for developing and deploying modern business applications for both customer facing and staff-facing applications.

Silverlight is essentially nothing more than Microsoft's vision of a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in designed to be the source of rich online user experiences and to dislodge Flash from its current dominant position on the market. And when the Redmond company said cross-platform they indeed meant it.

Microsoft revealed that it does not plan to leverage the existing Windows Update infrastructure in order to make available Silverlight to all users of the Windows operating system. Such a move would give Silverlight immediate and total access to an install base close to 1 billion users and will make it just as ubiquitous as Adobe's Flash. Instead the Redmond company has debuted a number of in-house projects to push the technology, as well as tap its partners for support.

And in this context, Microsoft announced that "Entertainment Tonight," HSN and World Wrestling Entertainment will all deliver Silverlight content to viewers. In fact, a total of 35 Microsoft partners worldwide have announced their support for Silverlight.

RECOMMENDED: Use Silverlight in the 32-bit Internet Explorer process on x64 systems. Most browser plug-ins (including Silverlight, Flash, Java and almost all ActiveX controls) only work in 32-bit browsers currently.

Note for 2 RC0
Applications built using this release will work off of the Silverlight 2 RC0 Developer Runtime only. This is not intended for public deployment, as end users will not have a way to install a suitable plug-in to view the application. No existing public versions (released or beta) of Silverlight 1.0 or 2 Beta 2 will be auto-upgraded to this runtime. This is only for developers.
