The Eclipse Tools for Silverlight (Eclipse4SL) plug-in is an open source, cross-platform plug-in for the Eclipse development environment that enables Eclipse developers to build Silverlight Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). Microsoft has collaborated with Soyatec, a France-based IT solutions provider, to develop subsequent beta versions, including the Mac version, since announcing the Eclipse4SL project in October 2008. Today we are excited to announce that Microsoft and Soyatec have released version 1.0 of the Eclipse Tools for Silverlight plug-in, which can be downloaded here: http://www.eclipse4sl.org/

Version 1.0 of Eclipse4SL targets Silverlight 2.0. We are working with Soyatec to add support for Silverlight 3.0 in spring 2010 timeframe. You can find a roadmap of the milestones that we have projected on the project site: http://www.eclipse4sl.org/#roadmap . Video demo walkthrough of the plug-in are also available here and here (Mac version).
