    The upgraded features look interesting surely an elevation from the previous one…

    it seems that recent silverlight development made adobe work harder than usual (not at all few years ago)

    HD video decoding is one of such things, i hope that ms will raise a bar even more, it is always good to have a competition, and silverlight is currently better than flash in technical aspects. unfortunatelly, not widespread enough

  3. Nice to see they are working hard to keep on developer’s sites.
