In addition to the changes above, the 3.3 release includes support for Visual Studio Community 2013. You can learn more about what’s new in the API here, and what’s new in the Viewer here. The Viewer’s source code is available on GitHub here.

Note that version 3.3 marks the last planned releases of the ArcGIS API for Silverlight and ArcGIS Viewer for Silverlight.

If you are interested in configurable web applications, please have a look at the recently released Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (downloadable developer edition here), which allows you to interactively create JavaScript and HTML-based GIS web apps.

The history and future of the ArcGIS SDKs for .NET

When Microsoft announced Silverlight at the MIX conference in 2008, we quickly started to look at what this amazing new technology could do to enable .NET developers to build great web applications for ArcGIS Server.   Since both Silverlight and WPF were based on .NET and XAML, we were able to quickly port our Silverlight implementation to the WPF platform.   The SDK grew popular very quickly – we even won several awards.  When the new Windows Phone platform was announced in 2010, we had a prototype running on a phone within the hour of launch.  The parity between the platforms was amazing such that nearly 99% of the source code was shared across the three APIs.   This provided a consistent experience for .NET developers building ArcGIS Server clients across all three platforms.
