Moonlight 2 hot on the heels of Silverlight

Filed under
Software

Version 2 of Moonlight is now available to download as a Firefox plug-in from Novell's Mono project website. The software allows WMA files and multimedia content implemented using Microsoft's rich internet Silverlight technology to be replayed in Linux. The new version, which was originally scheduled for release some months earlier, aims for broad compatibility with Silverlight 2.0.

The current stable version of Microsoft's RIA product is version 3, but the company presented a beta of version 4.0 at its Professional Developer Conference (PDC). If the Moonlight development team hits its ambitious targets, according to the roadmap a Linux implementation of Silverlight 3 should be ready by the third quarter of 2010, by which time they are also hoping to have produced an alpha version of Moonlight 4.
