Silverlight 1.1 正式更名为 Silverlight 2.0
Quote两个月前我们在Windows和Mac上发布了Silverlight 1.0,并公布了在Linux上交付Silverlight的计划。Silverlight 1.0专注于在浏览器上提供富媒体场景,并支持JavaScript/AJAX编程模型。

明 年我们会发布Silverlight的重大更新,专注于提供丰富互联网应用。这个版本会包括跨平台,跨浏览器版本的.NET Framework,支持在浏览器中丰富的.NET开发平台。今年早些时候我们发布了饱含此版本一些基本功能的早期Alpha。我们下一个公开预览版会增 加更多的特性。一些新的.NET相关的特性包括:

  • WPF UI Framework: 当前的Silverlight Alpha 版本仅包含基本的控件支持和managed API用于UI绘制。下一个公开预览版会增加更高级WPF UI Framework特性的支持。这些包括:the extensible control framework model, layout manager support, two-way data-binding support, 以及control template和skinning support。WPF UI Framework在Silverlight中的特性将会是上星期发布的.NET Framework 3.5中的WPF UI Framework特性的一个兼容子集。
  • Rich Controls: Silverlight会提供丰富的控件集使创建Rich Internet Applications变得更容易。下一个Silverlight预览版本会增加core form controls的支持(textbox, checkbox, radiobutton等),built-in layout management controls (StackPanel, Grid, 等), common functionality controls (TabControl, Slider, ScrollViewer, ProgressBar, 等) 以及data manipulation controls (DataGrid, 等).
  • Rich Networking Support: Silverlight会交付丰富的网络支持。下一个预览版会增加REST, POX, RSS, 和WS*通讯的支持。它也会增加跨域网络访问(因此Silverlight客户端可以访问互联网上任何受信任源上的资源).

  • 丰富的基础类库支持: Silverlight会包括丰富的.NET功能基础类库(collections, IO, generics, threading, globalization, XML, local storage, 等)。下一个Silverlight预览版也会增减预览版也会增加内置的LINQ到XML和更丰富的HTML DOM API集成。

先 前我们把这个集成.NET的Silverlight版本称为"Silverlight 1.1"。但是回顾了所有这些新特性(上面的列表只是一部分,还有我们未公布的),我们认识到称其为一个子版本并未真正反映其本质。因此我们已决定从此更 改其名称为"Silverlight V2.0"。

我们会在2008年第一季度发布Silverlight 2.0 Beta。该Beta支持Go-Live许可,使开发者能开始构建和部署Silverlight 2.0应用。

我们也会发布免费的Visual Studio 2008 tools更新来在Visual Studio 2008内支持Silverlight 2.0,使开发者能容易的使用任何.NET语言构建Silverlight应用。我们支持在Visual Studio 2008标准版/专业版上开发Silverlight,也支持免费的Visual Studio 2008 Express版。

今后几个星期我们会讨论Silverlight 2.0应用程序构建的更多深入问题,请期待。

 .NET Web Product Roadmap (ASP.NET, Silverlight, IIS7)

Releasing the Source Code for the .NET Framework Libraries

We announced last month that we'll provide the ability for developers to download and browse the source code of the .NET Framework libraries, as well as enable integrated source debugging of them using Visual Studio 2008.  You can learn more about this in my blog post here.

We are finishing up the final deployment of the source servers that host this now, and will be publishing instructions on how to enable the integrated debugging experience within Visual Studio 2008 shortly.  I'll blog detailed steps on how to turn this feature on once it is available.

ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions Release

VS 2008 and .NET 3.5 include a ton of new features for ASP.NET development.  We are planning to deliver even more ASP.NET functionality next year with a "ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions" release.  The first public preview of this will be available for download next week on the web.

Next week's ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions preview release will include:

  • ASP.NET MVC: This model view controller (MVC) framework for ASP.NET provides a structured model that enables a clear separation of concerns within web applications, and makes it easier to unit test your code and support a TDD workflow.  It also helps provide more control over the URLs you publish in your applications, and more control over the HTML that is emitted from them.  You can learn more about it from Part 1 of my ASP.NET MVC Tutorial series.  I'm hoping to find time this weekend to write and post Part 2 of the series.
  • ASP.NET AJAX Improvements: New ASP.NET AJAX features in the ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions release will include better browser history support (back/forward button integration, and server-side history management support via a new <asp:history> server control), improved AJAX content linking support with permalinks, and additional JavaScript library improvements.
  • ASP.NET Dynamic Data Support: The ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions release will deliver new features that enable faster creation of data driven web sites.  It provides a rich scaffolding framework, and enables rapid data driven site development using both ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC.
  • ASP.NET Silverlight Support: With the ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions release we'll deliver support for easily integrating Silverlight within your ASP.NET applications.  Included will be new controls that make it easy to integrate Silverlight video/media and interactive content within your sites.
  • ADO.NET Data Services: In parallel with the ASP.NET Extensions release we will also be releasing the ADO.NET Entity Framework.  This provides a new modeling framework that enables developers to define a conceptual model of a database schema that closely aligns to a real world view of the information.  We will also be shipping a new set of data services (codename "Astoria") that make it easy to expose REST based API endpoints from within your ASP.NET applications.
