Silverlight 3 announced at Mix

In the first keynote of Mix, Scott Guthrie himself announced the release of the first Silverlight 3 beta.  I’m very excited about this release.  Some of the new features:

  • 3D effects
  • Pixel shaders
  • It will be possible to create Silverlight applications that runs outside the browser ( on PC and Mac! )
  • It will be possible to import Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop files into Expression Blend and even edit the file with Expression Blend.

I’m especially looking forward to work with this last 2 features.  You can download the visual studio tools for Silverlight 3 and Expression Blend 3 preview from  Every session at Mix will also be available for download 24 hours after the session.  Check it out at

 As soon as I’m back from Mix, I start creating some tutorials about Silverlight 3 that I will post here.
