More Silverlight 3 Links

I had initially planned to go through and polish up a few posts I had been working
on regarding some new Silverlight 3 features. Unfortunately I decided to do read a
few of my favorite blogs and saw some great posts covering some of the same topics.
While I go write some code… check these out:

MIX09 News: Silverlight 3, Blend 3, RIA Services

Today at Microsoft’s MIX09 conference a number of extremely exciting announcements
were made about the companies efforts in the RIA space. Most notable was the release
of a Silverlight 3
beta which includes a huge list of exciting new features including Out Of Browser
support, enhanced media capabilities and a line of RIA Services targeted towards building
line of business applications. The new release includes support for things like Deep
Linking, Navigation, SEO Optimization, Hardware GPU support, 3-D and Animation enhancements,
and the list goes on.

The Out Of Browser capabilities are a key items that targets an area a lot of people
having been asking for and creates some truly exciting innovation opportunities to
create cross platform applications that can be run from the desktop. (Translation:
You can write a CLR application that runs on a Mac) 

For more information, here’s the link to get started as well as some of the key blogs
posts of the day to get you started. I’ll be posting more on some of my recent work
with the new bits over the next few days.
