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!

The ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET 10.2.3 beta is now available on the Esri Beta Community. This is a quality release that resolves some issues encountered in the previous beta. A number of enhancements have also been included with the product:
On Friday April 18th, we updated the Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS app that is hosted within ArcGIS Online. We are busy working on updating the Portal for ArcGIS configuration utility as well so please look for this update inside of the Customer Care site later this week.
In March we rolled out quite a few updates to Esri products and the Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS was no exception. A lot of exciting new features were added and you can find a full list of updates on our doc site or a preview of them from this blog article.
Perhaps the most sought after request that we added this release is to extend the reach of Dashboard beyond Windows Desktops and laptops and add support for tablets (iPads and Android tablets) so that more people within the organization can use it. With the 10.2.2 release, we have done just that by building Dashboard into the browser so it can run across platforms.
This blog article will describe how you can author operation views that target the browser and highlight capabilities within the browser app itself. Continue reading
At the //build/ conference in San Francisco today, Microsoft announced a new development platform for Windows Phone that unifies the developer experience between Windows Store and Windows Phone. This greatly enhances the code-sharing story we presented at Esri Developer Summit … Continue reading
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):
We are excited to announce the 10.2.2 beta release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET! This SDK enables developers to build rich, high performance GIS applications for Windows PCs, tablets, and phones. It includes three APIs that support building .NET apps for Windows Desktop, Windows Store, and Windows Phone. The APIs share a common design and structure, which encourages sharing implementation logic across Windows platforms. Continue reading
