Microsoft Silverlight 3 SDK

What is Microsoft Silverlight 3 SDK?

The Microsoft Silverlight 3 Software Development Kit provides libraries and tools for developing Silverlight applications. Microsoft Silverlight is an application framework for writing and running rich internet applications. Silverlight 3 includes an increased number of controls including but not limited to DataGrid, TreeView, various layout panels, DataForm for forms-driven applications and DataPager for viewing paginated data. On the media front, Silverlight 3 supports Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) audio decoding as well as hardware-accelerated H.264 video decoding. Silverlight 3 supports Out-of-Browser experiences, i.e., Silverlight applications can be installed to the system for offline access (provided the application manifest is designed to allow local installation) where they run outside the browser. Installed Silverlight 3 applications automatically check for updates asynchronously on every launch and updates are automatically installed.
