<strong>Waltham, Mass. &mdash; Dec. 2</strong><br />The Moonlight Project and Novell announced the 1.0 beta release of Moonlight, an implementation of Silverlight for Linux. <br /><br />With Moonlight 1.0, users on Linux will be able to view Silverlight 1.0 content. This includes WMV video and audio, allowing Linux users to access several Web sites that were previously unsupported on Linux.<br /><br />The Moonlight 1.0 release is part of a technical collaboration announced by Novell and Microsoft in September of 2007. Microsoft has provided access to its test suites for Silverlight, and a Media Pack for Linux users that includes licensed media codecs for video and audio.<br /><br />Moonlight is distributed as a Firefox extension, and should run on most major Linux distributions in Firefox 3. <br /><br />Source code is also available for Moonlight, so it can be ported to other platforms. Moonlight 1.0 is available under the GNU Library General Public License. The Microsoft media pack is a product distributed by Microsoft and is available from Microsoft&#39;s Web site for use with Moonlight.<br />
