Moonlight 2.0 goes gold

Novell released the second version of opensource implementation of Silverlight, Moonlight 2.0, today for linux users. Although Moonlight is lagging way behind the Silverlight version which is at 3.0 stable and 4.0 beta, this release will give users compatibility with SIlverlight 2.0 applications and some 3.0 ones as well.
Moonlight is opensource, however, the codecs needed for audio and video are closed source , non free and licenced by Microsoft.
Moonlight is compatible with firefox. Compatibility with google chrome and opera are not very encouraging at this stage.
