Microsoft As Bill Gates promised earlier this week during his last public speech as chairman of Microsoft at TechEd 2008, the company has released the second beta of Silverlight 2, Microsoft's Flash competitor. Silverlight 2 beta 2 comes as a 4.66MB download, but as Ars Technica already noted, the Silverlight homepage has not yet been changed to reflect the new release, but there is a changelog that details many of the changes in this release. The Mac OS X version has not yet been released.

Moonlight is already available, though support is really only there for Silverlight v1.1 ATM. Silverlight 2.0 support is under development, despite there being a profile 2.0 download.

You have to compile yourself if you want movie playback.
