Final Microsoft Silverlight 2.0 Due Out Tomorrow

It’s almost here… and you will get it (the upgrade) auto-magically. (I’m not sure if that is good, or not!)

Final Silverlight 2.0 to ship tomorrow

“In a teleconference today, Microsoft Corporate Vice President Scott Guthrie told the press that the company’s 2.0 version of Silverlight will be ready to ship tomorrow, October 14. Windows users who have already downloaded and deployed Silverlight 1.0, or any of the betas of Silverlight 1.1/2.0, could very well wake up tomorrow to find their platforms have been automatically upgraded, as the platform is capable of silently upgrading itself using the WSUS service. Brian Goldfarb, who directs the Developer Platform Group, also added that a number of Silverlight-related projects will be launched for the open source community. Most interestingly, a community technology preview is being released of a development environment that will bridge Silverlight 2.0 with the Eclipse environment. This CTP will include an IDE that enables XAML editing and C# authoring within Eclipse.”
