Hey! I have a great news for you guys!
Bill Gates said that Silverlight 2 (beta2) will be available this week.
Availability this week of Silverlight 2 beta 2, the latest version of Microsoft’s cross-browser, cross-platform and cross-device plug-in for delivering the next generation of .NET-based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web. Now available with a commercial Go Live license, Silverlight 2 beta 2 will be used to power the unprecedented online experience NBC Universal is creating for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. To help developers take full advantage of Silverlight, Microsoft also released Expression Blend 2.5 June 2008 Preview and Microsoft Silverlight Tools beta 2 for Visual Studio 2008.
How cool it is! I’ve been waiting this for so long. Another great news is that we will be able to use ADO.NET Data Service (Astoria) with Silverlight 2 beta2. Hey! Please keep on watching MS Download Center and let me know if you saw SL2b2 in “New Downloads”. I will let you know as soon as I get the link.
