Silverlight’s release cycle is separate from the release cycle of Visual Studio, but it occupies an important place in Microsoft’s line of products that depend on Visual Studio—so important that it warrants a Chapter on its own. This chapter covers all the changes that have been added to Silverlight 5. We start by walking you through a brief history of Silverlight itself followed by each of the changes. These changes range from the addition of new controls (PivotViewer and RichTextBlockOverFlow controls) to changes made to databinding and improvements to graphics (3D and independent animations). We finish the Chapter talking about how you can call native code from Silverlight.
