Microsoft Releases Patches for Silverlight

Microsoft released an update to its Silverlight media streaming client that fixes a range of bugs in both the Windows and Mac OS versions. Instead of a patch, per se, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) released an update to Silverlight on Thursday. Most Silverlight users will be offered the update via the Silverlight installer, but there are other delivery options, as well.

The new -- updated -- version is numbered Silverlight 4 (4.0.50524.0).

The bugs that the updated Silverlight 4 release fixes include one where if a user types a random string at the end of a Web request, it causes the Silverlight application to crash.

Two other bugs fixed in the update are related to use of Microsoft's PlayReady digital rights management (DRM) technology. Without the update, PlayReady-encrypted media will not play on "certain configurations" of Windows XP or Mac OS, according to the article.
