Version 10.2 of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF is now available!

Version 10.2 of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF is now available for download on the ArcGIS Resource Center.   This is a significant release that includes pivotal fixes and updates, and provides easier access to the product download with more flexible licensing.

Here are a few highlights of what’s new with the WPF SDK:

  • Download the product and develop apps for free.  To get started, create an ArcGIS for Developers account to activate your ArcGIS subscription.   Login to the ArcGIS for Developers site, click on the Licensing menu, and follow the simple instructions.
  • Integration with Visual Studio 2013 and Blend for Visual Studio 2013.
  • Support for a new, simplified, task-based approach to asynchronous programming using async and await.
  • Set the rendering mode for graphics layers and feature layers.  Dynamic mode to retain a dynamic, interactive experience with graphics.  Static mode to improve drawing performance when displaying graphics.
  • Use symbol rotation parameters on renderers.
  • Define label properties for dynamic layers in ArcGIS map services.
  • Support for new ArcGIS Image Service features included with 10.2.
  • Create, update, and delete items on ArcGIS Online or on-premise ArcGIS Portals.
  • Use WebMapViewModel to integrate web maps into apps that employ MVVM design patterns.
  • Use IdentityManager with OAuth2 authentication workflows.

See the Release Notes for more details on what’s new and changed in version 10.2.

Source code for the Toolkit libraries is available on CodePlex and will be made available on GitHub soon.

Note, this release does not contain the new beta features included with other 10.2 ArcGIS Runtime SDKs, such as support for offline use of data for map display, sync-enabled editing, locators, and networks.   The new ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET, discussed in a blog post earlier this year, will support this new offline functionality.  The ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET will be available as 10.2.1 public beta in December 2013.

Update Android v2 Projects to v10.1.1

With our recent release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android v10.1.1 we dropped support for Android 2.2 API level 8.  This allowed us to move up our support level to Android 2.3.3 API level 10 which has almost half, 47.4%, of the Android platform distribution as of Jan. 3, 2013.  This is causing projects built prior to v10.1.1 not to be recognized by our Eclipse feature tooling.
