Scott Guthrie: currently no plans for a 64-bit Silverlight

Scott Guthrie, corporate vice president of Microsoft's .NET Developer Division, began talking about Silverlight 3 in November 2008. Last month he started again, probably because MIX09, which Guthrie will be keynoting, is coming up next month. Silverlight 3 Beta 1 is most likely going to released at the conference. Among the new features for the next version are media enhancements (including H.264 video support), graphics improvements (including 3D support and GPU hardware acceleration), and application development improvements (including richer data-binding support and additional controls).

That's what Guthrie has been saying for the last few months, but one thing he wasn't talking about was 64-bit support. When I asked him if there would be a 64-bit Silverlight 3 version, he gave me the following response via e-mail:

Right now our plan is to run SL in 32-bit mode (and not have a 64-bit native version). This is mostly because other browser plug-ins (and most browsers) don't support 64-bit yet. We are looking at adding native 64-bit support in the future though.
