silverlight 5 features

Silverlight 5 Features:

The full feature set planned for Silverlight 5 was announced at the Firestarter event in December 2011 and also includes the following features:

·         Support for Postscript vector printing enables users to create reports and documents, including the ability to create a virtual print view different from what is shown on the screen.
·         Improved power awareness prevents the screen saver from being shown while watching video and allows the computer to sleep when video is not active.
·         Remote control support, allowing users to control media playback
·         DRM advancements that allow seamless switching between DRM media sources.
·         Enhanced OpenType support.
·         Fluid user interface enables smoother animation within the UI. Inter‐Layout Transitions allow developers to specify animations to apply when elements are added, removed or re‐ordered within a layout. This provides smoother user experiences when, for example, items are inserted into a list.
·         Text clarity is improved with Pixel Snapping.
·         The DataContextChanged event is being introduced.
·         WS‐Trust support: Security Assertion Markup Language authentication token.
·         64 bit support
·         COM Interop for trusted applications running in‐browser.
·         Calling unmanaged code using P/Invoke from trusted applications in and out of browser.
·         The Pivot viewer control enables a visual way to rapidly sort through large collections of graphical data, for example a catalog of movies represented by images of dvd covers, using intuitive transitions to show the effects of filters on the result set.
