Silverlight 3 Beta Available


Microsoft have just realsed the new Beta 3 for Silverlight.
There is a host of new feature, much of which is aimed at capturing the Adobe market. (Including new navigation and page framework for improvements like integrate silverlight with the browsers forward and back buttons and over 100 controls for charting.)

There are new advances for visual effects (i.e 3D animation, 3D perspective, caching bitmap, pixel shader effects,  caching bitmap, app themes, and even control skinning).

I think one of the nicest areas of change is that Silverlight offers a way to allow search engines to search silverlight content (by mirroring to HTML). Adobe Flash files are not visible to search engines and this could really aid the adoption.
