SDK Update, 1 million downloads and Phones for Developers
February 5, 2011 Leave a comment
In preparation for the NoDo update, developers can now download the latest refresh of the SDK here (if the download doesn’t work, please try again later as the CDNs are still updating). This update will provide:
- Copy and Paste support for textboxes
- Updated emulator image that contains the copy and paste functionality (note: The functionality won’t be available on your actual device)
- Bug fixes and performance enhancements
I highly recommend you read the Windows Phone Developer blog post regarding the update and its usage.
On a slightly different note, there have been over one million downloads of the SDK tools which is an amazing milestone.
Finally, developers have been requesting access to a non-contract phone to test on. MS have partnered with Zones.com to sell the phones. Check out the official blog post for all the info on this and the update.
