In all the excitement of getting oriented in the new digs at Microsoft, I almost missed the news that Silverlight 2 beta 2 has been released! You can get the goods from Silverlight.net. I found a nice overview of what Silverlight 2 and beta 2 have over on the GeekValley blog.
Lots to dig into in Silverlight 2, especially since I’ve been out of the Silverlight loop for the past 6 months. New support for cross-domain connections using sockets, sibling to Silverlight’s existing cross-domain HTTP request, will be interesting to dig into.
