Beginning today you can download the Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP Refresh (WPDT CTP) from http://developer.windowsphone.com, which means you can now build Windows Phone 7 apps on the final release of Visual Studio 2010 (VS2010). While this update is primarily intended to enable development using the final release of VS2010 there are a few new things here too.
Examples of what’s new & changed include:
Please read the release notes before installing this refresh. A few tips:
Documentation links include Developing Windows Phone Games and Silverlight for Windows Phone as a part of the XNA Game Studio 4.0 and Silverlight 4 RC documentation sets, respectively. If you have feedback about our documentation, join the discussion in the Windows Phone forums or use the ratings control in the upper right-hand side of the pages on MSDN.
As noted above this refresh is intended primarily to ensure compatibility with the RTM version of Visual Studio 2010. We are working additional releases that we will make available through the launch of Windows Phone 7 in the fall. So please keep sending us your feedback, as we take it all to heart and want to get you what you need in the final product which we can only do with your continued partnership. We can’t wait to see the apps you’re building!
