Microsoft has released the Second Beta of Silverlight 2.

Announcement on Scott Guthrie's blog.

The highlights:
  • 4.8 MB Download that does not require .NET Framework on the target system
  • The tools for VS 2008 will work with VS 2008 and VS 2008 SP1 beta
  • Adds more controls to beta 1
  • Cross-domain socket support
  • Background thread networking
