ArcGIS Pro represents Esri’s strategy for creating modern GIS desktop software that tightly integrates with the entire ArcGIS Platform. ArcGIS Pro 1.0 was first released in January as a strong tool for visualization, supporting both 2D and 3D; analysis, containing the vast majority of the Geoprocessing tools; support for multiple layouts; and sharing via packages, 2D web maps and 3D web scenes.
We have continued to listen to your feedback and to build upon the strong foundation of ArcGIS Pro. This week, Esri has released ArcGIS Pro 1.1 which has many of the top enhancements that you have asked for:
- A new SDK for .NET to customize and extend ArcGIS Pro
- A Range Slider that allows you to dissect and visually analyze your numeric data
- The ability to publish 3D scenes containing multipatches
- Layout enhancements, like guides and snapping and the ability to add extent indicators
- Support for working with Excel tables directly
- Date line wrapping allowing you to pan, edit, and work across the international date line
Additionally, there are many more enhancements in ArcGIS Pro 1.1 related to geoprocessing, imagery and raster, 3D Analyst, Network Analyst, and Workflow Manager. Visit the What’s New in ArcGIS Pro section for more details.
What’s Coming After Pro 1.1
We envision that at the end of this year, we will release ArcGIS Pro 1.2 with even more capabilities including:
- Strong KML support
- The ability to publish and use vector tiles
- Mobile Map Packages for deployment on all your devices
- Additional 3D Web Scene capabilities
- Data Driven Pages
- Animations, Charts and Graphs
- And more Geoprocessing tools
There are also plans to improve integration of analysis with ArcGIS Online, both with tools and information sets, and for a number of new analysis capabilities and tools including:
- Improved suitability analysis
- Cost distance analysis
- Space time anomaly detection
- Empirical Bayesian Kriging (EBK) for multi- variant analysis
- Enhanced projection support
The ArcGIS Pro releases coming later in 2016 will focus on support for some major solutions including Utility Management, Parcel Management, and Transportation and Pipeline (Linear Referencing). We will also continue to enhance our cartographic, imagery, and analysis capabilities.
The ArcGIS Pro adventure is just getting started, so look for the notification inside of ArcGIS Pro to update to ArcGIS Pro 1.1. If aren’t currently using ArcGIS Pro and you haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, visit www.esri.com/pro for a free 60-day trial.
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.

The 10.2.5 release of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET is now available to download from the ArcGIS for Developers web site. This quality release follows the 10.2.4 release in October 2014 and addresses some critical issues you asked us to fix. You can read the full list of enhancements, issues addressed, and known limitations in the release notes. We’ve also enhanced the search and browse experience for sample content by integrating within the ArcGIS for Developers web site.
Keep in mind the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET and Toolkit are also available as NuGet packages:
NuGet is integrated with Visual Studio and makes it easy to get started developing apps with the product and retrieving updates when available.
The 10.2.5 release of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF is now available to download from ArcGIS for Developers. This release follows the 10.2.3 release in May 2014 and addresses at least 50 bugs you asked us to fix, and a few more we found as well! We also found time to add a few minor enhancements you asked for:
- Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition is now a supported IDE.
- The gdbVersion on RelationshipParameter Class is now supported.
- New DrawMode.ScreenAlignedRectangle enumeration type was added (Note: DrawMode.Rectangle is map-aligned).
- Support for feature collection items by reference in WebMaps.
- Exposed Symbol properties on Editor, TemplatePicker and EditorWidget.
- Support for WMTS multidimensional services.
You can read the full list of enhancements, issues addressed and known limitations in the release notes.
Note that version 10.2.5 marks the last planned release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF. Technical support will continue to be available through June of 2016. Moving forward, we recommend you explore WPF solutions based on the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET. For information on transitioning to the new ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET please read this blog post.
Last month I published a blog post about the ArcGIS Runtime and Xamarin in which I stated that we had no immediate plans to support Xamarin. However, I did solicit feedback on the topic to determine how important the Xamarin platform is to current and future projects. Your response in favor of supporting Xamarin was overwhelming. So after careful consideration, I’m excited to announce commercial support for Xamarin. We seek to provide a public beta before the end of 2015.
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!
