The Windows Mobile SDK Documentation has been updated today, with a release dated September 2006.

Please use this update as your primary source of information on the Windows Mobile SDK. This release replaces all others, especially the out-dated documentation that ships by default with the Smartphone and Pocket PC SDKs.

The easiest way to use this documentation is to make sure that Visual Studio is configured to use Online Help. You can also go to MSDN directly (links below) which will always display the latest documentation.

As well as many smaller corrections, this latest update includes:
