  1. While Adobe has been getting most of the press recently for their Flash 10.1 RC, Microsoft has quietly announced their plans to release the final version of Silverlight 4.0 as early as next week. This major update will provide more fundamental changes than prior iterations, including Google Chrome support, better performance (up to 200% over Silverlight 3), improved security with digital signing and sandboxing, and greater control for developers.

    This release is going to be really a great one, putting the abilities of the platform pretty much on par with Flash in almost every way.

    Also, I would like to see an applicable demonstration of this so called (and desireable) 200% increase in performance over version 3.
