Last year was a surprise to developers that so much new technology was announced at MIX07. I was there and had a blast. This year I have to read the news from behind my pc. But I’m gathering all news for you and myself.
- Silverlight 2 with GoLive license.
Silverlight 2 Beta 1 for Windows
Silverlight 2 Beta 1 for Mac
- Silverlight 2 now has controls.
But that’s not just it, you get source code and a lot (!) of unit tests for the controls. Always nice to have a look at.
- Silverlight on Nokia phones
Microsoft announced that with the help of Nokia they’re porting Silverlight to the Nokia S60. The plan is to show it during the keynote.
- Silverlight 2 for Windows Mobile
Yeah! All my dreams coming true! First .NET Compact Framework, then WCF and now Silverlight?! What could I want more?!
See the first mobile app in Silverlight here. This is IE though! 🙂
- Silverlight 2 and Seadragon
Zooming in on extreme large images.
- Silverlight and Sharepoint

- WPF & Shading support
Support for some cool hardware accelerated shaders! Do I hear WPF games?! 🙂
