Microsoft has officially released Silverlight 1.0 (read the press release).

Along with the release, Microsoft has announced upcoming support for Silverlight on Linux:

Microsoft will be delivering Silverlight Media Codecs for Linux, and Novell will be building a 100% compatible Silverlight runtime implementation called “Moonlight”.

Moonlight will run on all Linux distributions, and support FireFox, Konqueror, and Opera browsers.  Moonlight will support both the JavaScript programming model available in Silverlight 1.0, as well as the full .NET programming model we will enable in Silverlight 1.1.

Miguel de Icaza has more details on the Microsoft-Novell collaboration on his blog.
