Microsoft Silverlight is a powerful tool for creating and delivering rich Internet applications and media experiences on the Web. Silverlight 5 builds on the foundation of Silverlight 4 for building business applications and premium media experiences.
Among other capabilities, the Silverlight 5 beta highlights dramatic video quality and performance improvements, and features that improve developer productivity.

New Features Announced for Silverlight 5:
Improved media support and rich UI capabilities:
Hardware Decode and presentation of H.264 improve performance for lower-power devices to render high-definition video using GPU support.
TrickPlay 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.
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 allows users to control media playback.
Digital rights management advancements allow seamless switching between DRM media sources.

Building next-generation business applications:
Silverlight 5 text (bottom) has improved clarity
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 improvements make it possible to build rich magazine-style text layouts:
* Multicolumn text and linked text container allow text to flow around other elements.
* Tracking/leading set precisely how far apart each character is for full creative control.
* Text clarity is improved with Pixel Snapping.
* Text layout performance is significantly improved.And more..
