Microsoft Silverlight 4 - Beta anounced

Post icon  Posted 19 November 2009 - 10:02 AM

At PDC (Professional Developers Conference) 2009 it was officially announced by Scott Guthrie that Silverlight 4 is now available as a beta release. 3 months passed since the release of Silverlight 3, and here comes the new build. But don't think that there are only some minor changes out there. Among the many improvements and additions, here is what's about to come in the next release of Microsoft's RIA platform:
  • Tooling
  • Printing API
  • Right-click event handling
  • Webcam/microphone access
  • Mouse wheel support
  • RichTextArea Control
  • ICommand support
  • Clipboard API
  • HTML Hosting with WebBrowser
  • Elevated trust applications
  • Local file access
  • COM interop
  • Notification (“toast”) API
  • Network authentication
  • Cross-domain Networking changes
  • Keyboard access in full screen mode
  • Text trimming
  • ViewBox
  • Right-to-left, BiDi and complex script
  • Offline DRM
  • H.264 protected content
  • Silverlight as a drop target
  • Data binding
  • IDataErrorInfo and Async Validation
  • DependencyObject Binding
  • StringFormat, TargetNullValue, FallbackValue
  • Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF)
  • DataGrid enhancements
  • Fluid UI support in items controls
  • Implicit theming
  • Google Chrome support

Pretty cool, isn't it?
