What's new in version 5.0 beta

Silverlight 5 includes improved media support and rich UI capabilities: It also includes TrickPlay, which 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.
