Mono Kills Open Source Silverlight.

In an interesting interview with InfoQ’s Jonathan Allen, Miguel de Icaza admits that the Mono project has abandoned Moonlight. When asked why the answer was revealing:
“Silverlight has not gained much adoption on the web, so it did not become the must-have technology that I thought would have to become.”

Silverlight 5.1.10411.0 Released Today – Pete Browns 10rem.net

leave a comment »

Today we released a minor update to Silverlight 5. The 32 and 64 bit update version number is 5.1.10411.0. The documentation said 5.2 at first, but this has been fixed. This will be rolled out to everyone. We throttle large updates of products at the start, so for some folks it was not automatically downloaded this morning. This is primarily an important security update addressing an TrueType security issue that was reported across a large number of products.
