ArcGIS Runtime SDK 10.2.4 for .NET is available!

We are excited to announce the first commercial release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET!  Download version 10.2.4 and use it today to build production-ready apps for Windows Desktop, Store, and Phone: https://developers.arcgis.com/net/

This release is culmination of work over the last two years, since the official release of the Windows 8 platform and Windows Runtime in late 2012.  During that time, we focused on refining the native app developer experience for .NET.  We discussed our vision for the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET, built as a new, shared API across native app platforms promoted by Microsoft.  We provided guidance for WPF developers seeking to transition from our popular ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF to our new SDK.  In the end we created a modern, high-performance ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET with support for offline workflows, sync-enabled feature services, shapefiles, client-side labeling and much more.  We look forward to seeing the great apps you’ll create with the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET!

For those who participated in the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET beta program, thank you for your valuable feedback.  The beta program was a great success, made possible by the contribution of nearly 3000 participants.   Although the beta program has completed, the beta community will remain open for a short time to host documentation pertaining to changes between 10.2.3 beta and 10.2.4, view the status of bug reports, and wrap up forum discussions.

Thank you and enjoy!
ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET Team

Operations Dashboard Update

Last night we updated the Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS. Yes, it was a stealthy update that happened to the browser app that is hosted inside of ArcGIS Online. Though a minor, bug fix update, it was strategic.

The Browser app now supports labels that you add to layers in your web map, we have replaced the graphics library used for charting and graphing widgets to improve clarity and readability, we addressed several minor stability updates with the Dashboard heartbeat and improved popup support within dynamic map services.

The best news – you don’t need to do anything to pick up these updates! Enjoy!
