First off, thanks to everyone who came out to the Esri International Developer Summit in Palm Springs. It was great to meet you, share in your passion for technology, and get clear and direct feedback from you.
Some of you at the conference reported to us performance issues you were experiencing in your iOS apps after upgrading to version 10.1.1 of SDK. Some of these issues have also been previously reported on the user forums. We’re happy to announce today that we have an update that will greatly improve performance of your iOS apps by reducing memory and CPU utilization of the display subsystem. You can download the update here.
To our international users, we would also like to point out that this update adds translations for 6 new languages – Danish, Estonian, Hebrew, Latvian, Lithuanian, and Portuguese (Portugal).
We encourage you to try out the update and let us know how things go. As always, we’ll be listening.

ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt is designed to help C++ developers use the Digia Qt framework to create highly functional GIS applications that use local services, yet the applications can have a small footprint. Local services allow for disconnected work in the field; an ArcGIS Server connection is not required.
We are pleased to announce the 10.2 beta release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Store apps. The ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Store apps provides a high performance mapping experience for modern apps on Windows 8 and Windows RT. The SDK is founded on an ArcGIS core runtime, built for the Windows Runtime, and provided for use by .NET developers. The beta release of the SDK includes support for building XAML/.NET Windows Store apps. Use the SDK to:
- Mash-up map, feature, and image services from ArcGIS Online and your own on-premise ArcGIS Server to create unique maps
- Search for features in a map using spatial or SQL criteria
- Sketch points, lines and polygons on the map
- Match addresses to locations (geocode) and locations to addresses (reverse-geocode)
- Generate routes and driving directions
- Use the geometry engine to perform geometric operations and compute spatial relationships between features
- Search and use items in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS
Download the SDK from the Esri Beta Community. To start, you’ll need an Esri Global account, registered with the Beta Community. Once registered, fill out a brief survey to be accepted into the beta program. Once in the program, click on the Software Downloads link under the Project Resources section (bottom of the table of contents), download the VSIX file and install. Visual Studio 2012 on Windows 8 is required.
We invite you to browse the documentation for the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Store apps at: http://developers.arcgis.com/en/windows-store
We also provide a set of repositories on GitHub with source code to help you get started and enhance your Windows Store apps quickly and easily:
