After a loving incubation period, the Moonlight 2.0 preview, an open source implementation of Microsoft’s Silverlight for Linux has been released:
- source code (tar.bz)
- Firefox/Linux binaries for x86 and x86/64
- Release Notes
- Sites that we are tracking.
- Chris Toshok’s blog with more details (Chris is the Moonlight team lead).
This is the ECMA VM running inside the browser and powering C# and any other CIL-compatible languages like Ruby, Python and Boo. You can use Moonlight/Silverlight as a GUI (this is what most folks do) or you can use it as the engine to power your Python/Ruby scripting in the browser. more here
