I don’t normally post about Silverlight since I tend to focus on Team System so much. However, lately I have been spending a lot of time with Silverlight since I will be doing a presentation on it at our internal user group later this fall. As such, I noticed that Silverlight 3 has officially shipped.
Here’s a short list of new features available in v3.0:
- Ability to run Silverlight applications “out of browser”
- Navigation Framework
- SaveFileDialog (yeah!)
- Pixel Shaders
- ClearType (again, yeah!)
- Hardware Acceleration
- New Controls
- UI to UI Binding (third yeah!)
- New REST Networking Stack
- Mouse Wheel Support
- And much more…
