Moonlight has a new update. Basically I even missed the second preview. But here the test run of preview 3. The release notes are available here.
I just had to search for updates on my add-ons. Just updated it like any other Firefox add on. And a restart of the browser was all that was needed.
Just giving it the same new try as before.
Of course I start with testing the Silverlight.net site. Does it still work? Yes it does, it even feels a little better. Faster response. But looks are the same, so no new screenshot.
Next is the Silverlight Toolkit Example page for Silverlight 2. Ah my first surprise. It runs, but let’s look at the charts, the browser stops responding.
What about the Silverlight Toolkit examples for Silverlight 3? Still crashes my dear browser.
What about the performance of the Hard Rock deep-zoom site? Yes it feels like it’s better, but I didn’t measure it. But while clicking around a little bit I got this screen and error.
Hmm something else that is interesting to test is the 3D Tag Cloud by Peter Gerritsen will it run? And yes it runs! Interesting.
Hmm, in the end it still not enough for pre-production. But it performs better, at least it feels like it.
