We are pleased to inform you that the Beta 11.9 of C#/XAML for HTML5 - the extension for Visual Studio that lets you build cross-platform HTML5 apps in standard C# and XAML - is available for download!

Here is what's new since Beta 11.8:
- Grid.RowSpan and ColumnSpan!
Note: in the Simulator and on older browsers (older browsers are browsers with a red color on this page), if a spanned element overlaps a non-spanned one, both elements are placed in the same cell. We will fix the Simulator in a future update.
- The Grid control has been revamped: on modern browsers (modern browsers are browsers with a non-red color on this page) it now uses the CSS Grid Layout instead of html <table>. This leads to:
- Better performance
- Fewer DOM elements
- Almost identical behavior as the MS XAML Grid!
- 3X faster DataGrid control
- Browser.Window.Navigate(uri) to navigate to a different HTML page
- Improved SL compatibility: use the "MouseRightButtonUp" event instead of "RightTapped"
If you haven't already, be sure to check out the screenshots of the new Silverlight Migration Wizard introduced in the previous Beta 11.5!
