First Moonlight Source Code Release
To encourage users to try out Moonlight, we are doing a source-code only release of Moonlight for developers to try out Moonlight.
To try out Moonlight, you have two options:
* Media codecs: you must do your own build from source code.
* No-media codecs: we provide one-click addins for Firefox that will install with no effort.
Firefox addins are available from http://www.go-mono.com/moonlight.
Source code for Moonlight is available from here. To compile Moonlight from source code follow these instructions.
