C# and Silverlight 5 RC in Windows 8

Microsoft has delivered a new release candidate (RC) of Silverlight 5, a tool for creating and delivering rich Internet media and applications. C# 4 and C# 5 are still the most effective languages for writing the Silverlight 5 RC applications.

Pete Brown, the leader of Microsoft’s Developer Guidance Community Team in September 2011, said the Silverlight 5 RC is now available as a developer-only release, and is preparing developers for the final release later this year.

Silverlight 5 builds on the foundation of Silverlight 4 for building business applications and rich media experiences. Among other capabilities, the Silverlight 5 RC has modified video quality and performance, along with other features that improve developer productivity.
These include reduced network latency by using a background thread for networking; XAML parser improvements that speed up start-up and run-time performance; support for 64-bit operating systems; and reduced network latency by using a background thread for networking.

Does the Async CTP work with Silverlight 5 RC?

The Async CTP may work with Silverlight 5 RC, but according to Microsoft’s Stephen Toub, works effectively with Slivelight 5 Beta. The recommended procedure is to up a system with Visual Studio 2010 SP1, and install Silverlight 5 Beta and the Async CTP. After all of these installations are completed successfully, you will be able to successfully create and run new SL5 projects that uses Async CTP.
