Silverlight 5 RC is now Available

imageThe Silverlight 5 Release Candidate (RC) is now available for developers to download. This is a developer release, so there is no go-live license (you’ll want to wait for final release before deploying production apps). As we previously announced, the RTM is targeted to be out later this year. 

I’ve blogged about the features before but here are the newest features added since Silverlight 5 beta:

  • P/Invoke for calling native methods
  • 64-bit support for the plugin
  • Vector printing
  • Capabilities to support remote controls (for media)
  • In-browser trusted apps
  • PivotViewer now a part of Silverlight (with new features)
  • You can check out the great post by Pete Brown for more details.
