Silverlight 1.1 is a revolutionary browser plug-in that allows developers to create rich web pages. Like Adobe Flash, Silverlight supports event handling, two-dimensional drawing, video playback, and animations. Unlike Flash, Silverlight is tailored to .NET developers. Most impressively, Silverlight 1.1  applications can execute pure C# code.


The most exciting part of Silverlight is its cross-platform support. When Silverlight 1.1 is released, it will support a range of modern web browsers (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, and Safari), and it will run on a variety of operating systems (including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux). Essentially, Silverlight 1.1 will be a scaled-down, browser-hosted version of .NET.


Although Silverlight 1.1 is still a long way from release, it's already generating more interest than

any new Microsoft technology since .NET 1.0. Silverlight and ASP.NET Revealed provides a valuable preview that explores the alpha release of Silverlight 1.1. In it, you'll examine how you can integrate Silverlight content in an ASP.NET application, and you'll get a head start on Microsoft's next great innovation.
