10.2.2 release of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF

We are pleased to announce the 10.2.2 release of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF. You can download the SDK today from ArcGIS for Developers. This release follows the 10.2 release in Q4 2013 and includes several new features plus performance and quality improvements. Here are some of the highlights (much more information can be found in the release notes):

  • Streamlined licensing: By registering as an ArcGIS Developer and downloading the ArcGIS Runtime SDK, you are licensed to undertake development and testing. It is no longer necessary to authorize your machine for development as you did in previous releases with the Software Authorization Wizard. Additionally, development and test license strings are no longer required when testing your application on non-development machines. Deployment licensing has been simplified too, for more information please see the release notes.
  • API enhancements including a new GdbVersion property on the ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer class.
  • More than 20 new Geoprocessing Tools:
    • Conversion to/from Excel and JSON.
    • Feature and raster data management including additional Mosaic dataset support.
    • 3D analysis including Stack Profile.
    • Linear referencing tools.

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

Note, this release does not contain the new features included with other 10.2.2 ArcGIS Runtime SDKs, such as support for the new runtime geodatabase, sync-enabled editing, or offline runtime locators and networks. The new ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET, discussed in a blog post last year, will support this new offline functionality. The ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET is available to download now as a public beta. For information on preparing for the new .NET SDK please read this blog post.

    1) Will ArcGIS Runtime for WPF exist in the next release or it will be totally displaced by ArcGIS Runtime for .NET?
    2) If WPF code was adopted to ,NET code and a previouse runtime-wpf application was recompiled with runtime-.net libraries then should customer purchase new runtime standard licence to use the same application or he can continues using his old wpf-standard licence with ,net application?

      1) There will be additional releases of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF and it will continue to be supported for some time. However, no significant new functionality will be added. Instead we will be enhancing the new ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (which includes a WPF-based API for building Windows Desktop apps).

      2) Any applications you plan to migrate from the existing WPF SDK to the new .NET SDK count as the same deployment license as long as it is essentially the same application with the same functionality and is a direct replacement (i.e. the original application is not still being used by the same user or by another user).
