Microsoft to release Silverlight 3 on 10th July

Microsoft has confirmed that Silverlight 3 and Expression Studio 3 designer tools will be available on 10th July

Silverlight 3 introduces more than 50 new features, including 3D support, GPU acceleration, H.264 video support and out-of-the-browser capabilities to Silverlight.. The out-of-browser support will enable developers to build applications that work like Adobe's AIR plugin. Dramatic video performance and quality improvements are also expected.

Silverlight 3 was not expected until later this year but yesterday company officials began sending out press invites for the launch.

Cheers for the info Swarfega.

Developers can go here and start learning how to use the new features now. There isn't any 'End-User Runtimes' though until the date Swarfega mentioned in the first post.

This is a developer beta release only! This means there is no “go-live” licensing available and the end-user runtime of Silverlight 3 is not available. The tools below are intended for software developers only.
