ArcGIS Runtime SDK 10.2.6 for .NET is now available!

We are proud to announce the release of version 10.2.6 of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET!  This release brings support for 3D and KML to .NET developers using the Runtime to build native apps for Windows PCs, tablets, and phones.

Here are a few highlights of new capabilities in the SDK:

  • Just like a MapView and Map are available for 2D, a SceneView and Scene enable you to display and interact with spatial data in 3D.
  • Support for KML version 2.2, plus some extensions. KML content can be hosted online or accessed locally and displayed in a Map or Scene.
  • Display buildings and structures using the new Scene service and display a variety of local data sources in a Scene, such as tile packages, mobile geodatabases, shapefiles, and local server services.
  • Show terrain using online image services or local raster data for elevation sources.
  • Extrude 2D graphics to provide 3D context.
  • Use pre-defined 3D symbology and custom models to render complex 3D graphics.
  • Change camera location to view Scene contents from different perspectives.

For a more complete list of new capabilities, performance improvements, and quality fixes in 10.2.6, please see the release notes.

Download and start using these new features today!

Update to ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android: 10.2.6-2

We are excited to provide another quick turnaround on an update to our recent 10.2.6 release of the Android SDK.  This is bug fix only release and there is no new functionality included with this minor but important fix.

To apply this fix, update your build.gradle file with the following dependency:

dependencies {
        compile ''

If you’ve downloaded the local v10.2.6 download and use the local AAR library, you can get the updated AAR lib module in the 10.2.6-2 download file.  All other SDK components are the same, so no need to download if you use the AAR lib in the preferred method from our Bintray maven URL.

All of our samples have been updated to use our latest version and developer instructions on how to sync your local fork of the samples with our public repository.  We invite you to collaborate with the community and the Esri development team on GeoNet & our GitHub samples and maps-app repos.
