Future of Moonlight


Taking a quick break from PDC, this prerecorded message is about Miguel de Icaza's comments last week on the future of Moonlight. Moonlight is an open source implementation of Silverlight for Linux/X11. Cooperation between Microsoft and Novell was started for Moonlight in the summer of 2007.

Moonlight is closing in on targeting compatibility with Silverlight 2 and is looking ahead to compatibility with Silverlight 3. Miguel uses the opportunity to talk about some opportunities for prototyping new features covering media and integration. This is the first time I can think of where Moonlight has been pushing to develop support ahead of the main Silverlight release.
