Dynamic Languages in Silverlight 2 Beta 2

A new version of Silverlight 2 has recently been released: Silverlight 2 Beta 2. Silverlight 2 is a Rich Internet Application framework for the Safari, Firefox and IE browsers on Windows and Mac OS X. Silverlight 2 has a cut down, sandboxed, version of the .NET runtime at its heart - called the 'Core-CLR'. This means that it can be programmed with DLR languages like IronPython and IronRuby. At last the browser can be scripted with Python!

To go along with this release, there has been an updated release of the 'Dynamic Languages SDK' that includes the IronPython and IronRuby for Silverlight distribution, development tools (Chiron) and samples.

In this blog entry, Jimmy Schementi (the Microsoft employee responsible for dynamic languages on Silverlight) introduces the updated SDK and samples:
