Microsoft Shuts Down

Microsoft has been pushing Silverlight on the masses for the past five years, but it still hasn’t been that widely accepted by developers. It has long been rumored that Microsoft wouldn’t pursue development of Silverlight past its present version and this may signal the end of its support.

Of course, "support" is not the same thing as "future additions and improvements". At the moment, we would not place any bets on Microsoft releasing Silverlight 6.
