With the first day of MIX, it seems like there's been a staggering stream of announcements (all of which probably require a good few days of investigations - why do I find myself increasingly accepting calendar invitations for internal meetings when it's the technology that's of interest to me? :-)).
Here's what I spotted;
- Silverlight 1.0 Beta is available with a Go-Live license.
- Silverlight 1.1 Alpha is available (this is the one with managed code support)
- I've seen a few people talking about inclusion of "the CLR" here and I must admit that I thought that this was "a CLR" rather than "the CLR" in the sense that it's a CLI implementation that comes with the Silverlight plug-in rather than the desktop CLR 2.0 that comes with Framework V2.0. I could be wrong though so take care but the description of the different approach to "Code Access Security" makes it sound that way.
- Dynamic language support also got announced (the "DLR" - see here)
- Silverlight Streaming Alpha available.
- Expression Studio has RTM'd. Web, Design, Blend and Media.
- Expression Blend 2 is available (for playing with Silverlight :-))
- The ADO.NET people have announced "Jasper" and "Astoria" ( see here )
- Version 5.0 of the Virtual Earth Map Control has been shipped.
I've tried to avoid linking up there but the main sites look to be;
- And Tim's got some great new resources including;
