Top 10 New Features in Silverlight 5

It's hard to pick just ten features, but here are my personal favorites.



Databinding Debugging
Is there really any question here?
DataBinding is one of Silverlight's core strength.
The inability to debug it, however, has been it's greatest weakness.
Hardware accelerated 3-D graphics
The web has long yearned for a rich 3D environment platform.
VRML was ahead of its time and Adobe killed Atmosphere just as it was building a thriving online community.
Silverlight 5's 3D feature has the potential to be just what the web has been waiting for.
Performance
64-bit browser support means you'll never see that stupid error message again.
It'll also means faster start up times and hardware acceleration in window-less mode.
Out-of-Browser Improvements
Multiple windows and P/Invoke!
Improved group policy support allows enterprises to lock down and open up the sandbox.
This means big things for LOB applications
WCF & Networking improvements
The headliner may be the addition of WS-Trust support, but there's a lot more under the hood.
Silverlight 5's networking stack adds supports for low-latency network scenarios.
RIA Services
WCF RIA services just keeps getting better: complex type support, better MVVM support,
and improved customization of generated code.
Text and Printing
Three words: vector based printing.
There's some other stuff too like crisper and cleaner text rendering,
multi-column text flow and linked text containers,
full OpenType font support and a Postscript Vector Printing API
Trickplay
Speed through videos without listening to chipmunk voices.
Improved Power Awareness
This will prevent screensavers from activating while you're watching a video on full screen.
Silverlight 5 is also smart enough to know when you're not playing a video
and allow the screen saver to kick in or let the computer sleep
Remote Control Support
Now, users can control media playback with remote control devices.
Why does this matter? One word: XBOX

Improved media support
. Low Latency Audio Playback: Use the SoundEffect API to trigger low-latency sound
. Variable Speed Playback: allows video to be played at different speeds and supports fast-forward and rewind. At up to twice the speed, audio pitch correction allows users to watch videos while preserving a normal audio pitch.
. H/W Decode of H.264 media: Significant performance improvements with H.264 media decoding of unprotected content
. DRM Key Rotation/LiveTV Playback: Long-running live TV playback protected through the use of rotating licenses
. Application-Restricted Media: Prevents playback of protected content in unauthorized applications

Improved Text support
. Text Tracking & Leading: Exercise fine-grained control over the spacing between characters and lines in your text
. Linked Text Containers: Create linked RichTextBlocks that allow text to flow seamlessly from one to the next
. OpenType and Pixel Snapped Text : Improved text clarity
. Postscript vector printing: reduces the size of print jobs and improves rendering quality of text
. Performance improvements for Block Layout Engine.

Building next-generation business applications
. PivotViewer -- now included in SDK. Adds support for dynamic client-based collections, XAML-based visuals, and customizability.
. ClickCount: Add support for multi-click to your application
. Listbox/ComboBox type-ahead text searching: Listboxes and ComboBoxes can now scroll based on text input
. Ancestor RelativeSource Binding: Bind to a property on a parent control
. Implicit DataTemplates: Allow DataTemplates to be defined implicitly
. DataContextChanged event
. Added PropertyChanged to the UpdateSourceTrigger enum
. Save File and Open File Dialog: Specify a default filename when you launch your SaveFileDialog and specify a default directory when you launch your OpenFileDialog
. Databinding Debugging: Set a breakpoint directly in XAML, examine locals, and debug your bindings
. Custom Markup Extensions: Execute custom code at XAML parse time
. Binding on Style Setters: You can now specify a binding within a style

Silverlight 5 performance improvements
. Parser Performance Improvements: Improved XAML parse times for UserControls & ResourceDictionaries
. Network Latency Improvements: Significant performance improvement in ClientHttpWebRequest scenarios
. H/W accelerated rendering in IE9 windowless mode: Silverlight now uses the new SurfacePresenter APIs for H/W accelerated rendering in IE9 windowless mode
. Multicore JIT: Shortens the start-up time for Silverlight apps
. 64-bit browser support

Graphics improvements
. Improved Graphics stack: The graphics stack has been re-architected to add features such as Independent Animations
. 3D: Use the XNA API on the Windows platform to gain low-level access to the GPU and draw vertex shaders and low-level 3D primitives. Includes Render targets, XNA built-in effects, surface composition settings for depth/stencil buffers and multi-sample anti-aliasing

Silverlight 5 extends features of the "Trusted Application" model
Silverlight 5 extends features of the 'Trusted Application' model to the browser for the first time. These features, when enabled via a group policy registry key and an application certificate, mean users won't need to leave the browser to perform complex tasks:
. Multiple window support: Launch multiple top-level windows inside a SL OOB application
. Full-Trust in-browser: Using Group Policy, deploy signed in-browser applications that harness the full power of full-trust functionality
. In-browser HTML support: Host your WebOC within an in-browser SL application
. Unrestricted File System Access: Read from and write to any directory on your system, from a full-trust application
. P/Invoke support : Allows existing native code to be run directly from Silverlight

Tools improvements
. Visual Studio Team Test support.
