Silverlight 2 GDR1 Now Available...

  • Comments 29

Not a huge release this one, but we've just shipped an update for Silverlight 2 that fixes a number of minor bugs that have been reported over the last couple of months.

Get it while it's hot, here:

Note that the developer tools page may have an old date/timestamp on it still, but the binary is the new updated version. You have the GDR1 if your Silverlight version is 2.0.40115.0 (the original Silverlight 2 version was 2.0.31005.0).

Here is a list of the main changes in the GDR (build 2.0.40115.0):

  • Fixes problems that were caused by Silverlight and McAfee scanning tools interactions
  • UI automation stability fixes, including:
    • graceful failures when attempting to use features that require .NET Framework 3.0 or 3.5 on machines that do not have either framework installed
    • improved Tablet support
  • Fixes an issue that arises when Mac users customize their environment by removing Arial and Verdana fonts
  • Fixes a known issue with Isolated Storage IncreaseQuotaTo method (see this post for more information)

It's also worth highlighting Tim Heuer's blog entry on the topic, which adds some good information about how to force users visiting your site to upgrade to the latest build if you're relying on one of the above fixes for your application.

  • I'm tired of wrestling with Silverlight. This post looks even more confusing than what I've had to deal with in the past. I like the error message I've had to wrestlted with before "Your Silverlight developer components are out of date. But I have the latest one installed: Version 9.0.30729.146." I don't want to go through that again! I think the programmers in India have taken over Microsoft. The quality is poor. I switched to Adobe Flex 3 and ActionScript and got some good quality fast results and user friendly programming environment. Well it's more mature and dependable. I get to spend time programming and not spending time trying to get the blankety blank Silverlight thing to run.

  • What!? Silverlight has client .NET dependencies for some features?  I though that's what downloading the runtime was for.

  • Micah, apologies - we could probably be clearer here on what this means. Essentially, this was a bug that could be triggered in certain situations where you were using the accessibility tools (e.g. magnifier) on Silverlight content on a machine without .NET Framework installed. In short, the bug was an accidental dependency that has now been removed.

    Randy, I'm not sure if you're attempting to make a not-so-subtle comment about your racial prejudice or whether you're genuinely trying to highlight a deficiency in Silverlight that you'd like to see us address. Every product issues updates, including Adobe's - it's quite common to see them issue a Flash update because of either a security vulnerability or just new features. You can take us to task on many things, but I'm not sure that I understand why the fact we issue updates from time to time is evidence of failure on our part.

  • Silverlight 2 のマイナーアップデート版である Silverlight 2 GDR(General Distribution Release) 1 が公開されました。基本的には、いくつかのバグフィックスを行ったものです。

  • Just putting a note here for people to know that the source is now also available in Visual Basic, courtesy of Neal Andrews!

    [we will incorporate that to the source tree on the next release]

    Cheers,

  • I think even this release will not install with McAfee running, seem to have the same access to reg key HKLM\S..\MozillaPlugins that we have with .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 and the HKLM\S..\Mozilla key.

    Site is using McAfee Virusscan Enterprise versions 8.n

    The advice to stop the McAfee services during install is OK for one machine but not for the thousands on site.

    Any advice appreciated.

  • You seriously could not make this type of stuff up. Microsoft released an update to Silverlight 2 recently . Did they call is SP1? Nope. Did they call it anything related to ANY other product strategy they have on the planet? Nope. Silverlight 2 GDR 1

  • Silverlight 2 RTW, GDR, GDR1 makes me say WTF?
