Silverlight 2 Beta 2 shipping this week and other tidbits

Announcements aplenty at TechEd 2008 in Orlando today.  Somasegar's been writing about his keynote with Bill Gates and Silverlight 2 Beta 2 is shipping this week with a go-live license for production! This means you can legally land apps in production even though it's beta code - I guess this helps get us round the fact that NBC are using the technology to stream HD content for the Olympics!

Here's a summary of what they announced:

  • Silverlight 2 Beta 2 with go-live license
  • Working with Big Blue, closer integration between DB2 and Visual Studio
  • CTP of the Microsoft Sync Framework that powers Live Mesh
  • CTP of Project "Velocity" - app cache platform for rapid access to disparate data
  • Visual Studio extensions for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 v1.2 - making it easier to build upon WSS in Visual Studio
