Yesterday I had a great time at Microsoft's Web-Fu! event in Belgrade, Serbia, and at the same time it was an opportunity to talk about what's new in Silverlight 4 Beta. During the talk, I demoed a couple of interesting things:
- New Bing Maps Beta application, Deep Zoom, street view, Photosynth, etc.
- Rene Shulte's Real time 3D augmented reality proof of concept
- Multi-Touch Puzzle
- Excel Interop example.
I also showed a little demo application which demonstrates some of the new features coming in Silverlight 4:
- New RichTextArea control
- DataGrid improvements
- New databinding improvements
- Out of browser improvements: notification (toast), HtmlBrowser control
- Making Silverlight speech using COM Interop
