Update on Silverlight 2 – and a glimpse of Silverlight 3 – ScottGu’s Blog

Filed under: Link, Work — Tags: , , — noocyte @ 10:13

Holy cow! Silverlight 2 was just released and ScottGu mentions some of the improvements coming in the next major versjon; Silverlight 3.

Next year we will ship our next major Silverlight release — Silverlight 3.

Silverlight 3 will include major media enhancements (including H.264 video support), major graphics improvements (including 3D support and GPU hardware acceleration), as well as major application development improvements (including richer data-binding support and additional controls). Note these are just a small sampling of the improvements – we have plenty of additional cool features we are going to keep up our sleeves a little longer.

Looks like Microsoft is pouring a lot of resources into Silverlight. Iā€™d have no issues betting the farm on Silverlight.

.NET Web Product Roadmap (ASP.NET, Silverlight, IIS7) – ScottGu’s Blog

Filed under: Link, Work — Tags: , , — noocyte @ 10:47

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: .Net rocks. This looks like a pretty solid roadmap to me. However I do find it strange that the “middletier” pieces arent getting a lot of love from Scott and his trusted minions. I mean in the backend they have Sql Server and will have great support for data binding and manipulation via ADO.Net Data Services and on the frontend they have ASP.Net, WPF and Silverlight; all good stuff. But I’d love to see some sort of support for a middletier server that would be placed between the two. Perhaps that answer really just is IIS? I guess WAS could also be part of the answer. Hosting WCF services in either is a pretty soild “middletier” server I guess.
