Microsoft Released Silverlight 3

Microsoft rolled out the next version of its competitor to Adobe Flash, Silverlight 3, today. The latest version of Silverlight comes with many features and improvements including clear type for both Windows and Mac, integration with a browser’s forward and back button, ability to work offline and hardware acceleration.

Silverlight 3 helps rich Internet application (RIA) developers work faster with new graphics, animation and 3-D features, and more than 60 controls.

Finally, Silverlight 3 enables developers to create lightweight Web application experiences that can exist outside the browser. This enables Web sites to deliver more persistent relationships with their customers.

It can be recalled that Microsoft had released the first version of Silverlight technology back in 2007 and later upgraded to the version 2 in 2008.

The Microsoft Silverlight 3 software development kit that provides libraries and tools for developing Silverlight applications is also available to download.
