The update will make it easier for businesses to modernise their applications with minimal effort.
Microsoft has announced general availability of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update SDK, meaning developers can finally develop apps for the latest iteration of Microsoft’s operating system.
The biggest change in this SDK is the introduction of support for Microsoft’s Mixed Reality, taking advantage of augmented reality and virtual reality, whether for gaming or other applications that can come alive in 3D.
“As humans, we interact with space constantly, and Windows Mixed Reality will feel the most natural for users,” Kevin Gallo, corporate vice president, of the Windows Developer Platform said. “With HoloLens, we have already demonstrated unrivaled innovation that is transforming industries. Now, our immersive headsets offer unrivaled experiences.”
The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update SDK will also “modernise” applications for the workplace, allowing developers to create new apps or update existing code to work on the platform and help boost productivity. To make the process of updating apps easier for developers, they can use Visual Studio 2017 version 15.4 to use the app packaging without having to convert the existing installer.
“Whether you’re building immersive experiences for Windows Mixed Reality, games, education or business applications, community is crucial to the Windows developer platform,” Kevin Gallo, corporate vice president, of the Windows Developer Platform said. “I look forward to seeing what you create with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update SDK.”
