Silverlight isn’t going away anytime soon. Microsoft has announced that Silverlight 5 is coming with a beta release in the first quarter of 2011. Silverlight 4 was released in March this year, along with an announcement that Silverlight is on 60% of all internet devices. The primary competition of Silverlight is of course, Adobe’s Flash as well as the open source HTML5.
The new iteration of the platform will see several major new features like variable speed for media playback, remote control support as well as smaller ones like stopping the screensaver from popping up when playing videos. Integrated 3D graphics support will also feature in the new Silverlight.
Tim Heuer, Program Manager for Silverlight, elaborated on the new features in his blog.
