First Moonlight Release

From Miguel de Icaza:

Today we are making the first public release of Moonlight, supporting the Silverlight 1.0 profile for Linux. The release comes in two forms:

  • No-media codecs supported, but easy to install: head to and click on the cute installer for Moonlight. This currently hosts builds for Linux x86 and x86-64 for Firefox.
  • Source-code compilation, but you can optionally compile FFMpeg codecs yourself. To do this, download our moon-0.6.tar.bz2. And follow the build instructions.

Definitely a major milestone. I remember when we announced this at ReMIX Boston last year. Very exciting to see the progress being made here.
