Announcements were plentiful at BUILD this week. Highlights include new developer opportunities on the Windows platform with a common platform across devices, a single toolset, a common infrastructure across the Windows and Windows Phone stores, and a clear commitment to interoperability. Specific announcements included:
Coming soon, Compact13TileShell as an alternative to Compact13MinShell:
The update for Compact 2013 is finally up on MSDN. This works in Visual Studio 2013. Windows Azure is to be renamed Microsoft Azure. WEShapWiz can directly generate a C# Compact 2013 project as an OS Subproject that builds with the OS!
Now same version as in Compact13Tools:
This version also sorts the menu.
Hey, I’m excited! I hope you are too. I’ve cracked the code for building C# apps directly with the OS build. That is, as an OS Subproject of a Windows Embedded Compact OS project the Managed Code project can be built and run as with Native Code apps. No SDK needed! No second instance of Visual Studio. There are actually a few ways for doing this but shouldn't we be able to do it like native code subprojects.
Updated list of Windows Embedded Compact/CE on Codeplex.
