Silverlight 1.0 Final Released

From http://nerddawg.blogspot.com/2007/09/ nothing-beats-shipping-silverlight-10.html:
Today Microsoft announced the debut release of Silverlight, the new cross-browser, cross-platform technology for developing compelling media experiences and RIAs. I joined the Silverlight effort around November of 2006 from working on WPF 3.5 feature areas, and it has been a wonderful ride. Working on two different product releases – Silverlight 1.0 and 1.1 - simultaneously is a very unique experience not easily summarized in a blog post. The kind of stuff this team has done in a matter of months is nothing short of amazing. We joke internally about how someday books will be written about these episodes; and needless to say, about the giants upon whose shoulders people like me stood. But for now, I’m happy and tremendously fortunate to have been a part of shipping a great product that millions will use and love.

I agree with that statement, not much I can add. I'm glad to see Silverlight 1.0 is now final and Scott Guthrie and his team will now focus on improving Silverlight 1.1. In our german sport community website meinSport.de we already use Silverlight too and we plan to add even more features with that exciting technology in the near future.
