Silverlight 4 beta released – Features and Download links

Silverlight 4 beta has just been demoed and launched at PDC09 by Scott Guthrie. It brings a lot of new functionality including microphone/webcam access, multi-touch, Google Chrome support, drag and drop to name just a few. As my own project will be made on Silverlight 4 beta, I can’t stress enough how awesome these new features are !

There’s a lot of information at Tim Heuer’s blog, so if you want a deep dive into Silverlight 4, that’s where you should be headed. Here are some useful snippets from his blog including the feature list and download links:

Out of browser support Silverlight experience has been further enhanced, as well as the UI and theming, so this is a good time to get started with Silverlight 4. Adobe Air had just recently released the beta for version 2 which was aimed at fixing performance issues as well as provided some new features as well including multi-touch. I would personally recommend Silverlight 4 for your next best RIA.

  1. Very good text. I’ve found your site via Yahoo and I’m really glad about the information you provide in your articles. Btw your sites layout is really messed up on the Kmelon browser. Would be cool if you could fix that. Anyhow keep up the good work!
