We were planning to discontinue Microsoft Silverlight support and announced in the Silk Test 14 release notes that Silverlight would no longer be supported in future Silk Test versions. Due to strong customer demands we have decided to continue targeted support for automation on Microsoft Silverlight applications.
For Silverlight, as with all underlying technology, Borland are reliant on some level of support from the technology vendor. Microsoft have committed to support Silverlight 5.0 until 2021, but have made no concrete announcement about the future roadmap of Silverlight. Microsoft themselves have removed Silverlight support from their testing products, and we believe Silk Test provides the most viable testing solution currently available. Whilst we endeavour to maintain the highest levels of support for our customers, we are occasionally limited in the support we can obtain from Microsoft on this platform.
