Silverlight 3 Launch Confirmed for July 10

Microsoft confirmed rumors in their MCP newsletter “MSDN Flash” last night that they are launching Silverlight 3 on July 10. The new version of the platform is going to come with a bit of fanfare with an online launch event hosted at The event will have a keynote, in-depth sessions and a virtual exhibit hall – which should be a cool way to launch the new platform.

There are a bunch of new features in SL3 and in Expression 3. Here are a few of the highlights that we will begin implementing next week:

  • Export Illustrator and Photoshop files with native support for layers in Expression. No more recreating vector objects!
  • UI element property binding.
  • True(er) 3D.
  • Deep linking.
  • Out of browser experience – make Silverlight apps behave more like a click-once deployment app.

Arrow has a number of projects coming up over the next 6-12 weeks using Silverlight as the UI on a Sharepoint back end for decision support systems. The new features are going to hit at just the right time for our team.


Hope this helps!
