As announced earlier this week in this post on the Windows Phone Developer Blog, the Windows Phone Developer Tools October 2010 Update is now available for download.  This update is a patch, so you must install the Windows Phone Developer Tools before you will be able to install the update.

This update includes the following components:

  • The Windows Phone Connect tool – this tool allows the Windows Phone Developer Tools to connect to a Windows Phone device without requiring the Zune software to be running; this allows developers to debug media playback scenarios on a device
  • The Windows Phone capability detection tool – this tool analyzes your Windows Phone game or application project and detects the capabilities that are required; this allows developers to update their WMAppManifest.xml file so they can test their game or application with the same set of capabilities that will be provided by the ingestion process
  • An updated version of the Bing Maps control

Here are some links to help you get started with the Windows Phone Developer Tools October 2010 Update:
