Microsoft announced that the rollout for updates to the “Mango” release of Windows Phone has begun. The Windows Phone team shared that we started rolling out the update to customer handsets and shared lots of developer goodness and started rolling out RTM updates to dev devices.
And now the Windows Phone SDK 7.1 RTW release is now available on the Microsoft Download Center for immediate download and update.
The tools now include some great new capabilities:
The underlying developer platform includes a massive number of API changes and capabilities that developers have been asking for (background agents; fast app switching; Silverlight 4; XNA/Silverlight Interop).
The Release to Web (RTW) release consists of seven additional release languages, final finishing touches to the tooling experience, a handful of bug fixes, and additional upgrade logic to provide a better installation process for users coming from earlier tools.
