Version 10.1.1 of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Phone is available!

The ArcGIS Runtime SDK v10.1.1 for Windows Phone is available for download from the ArcGIS Resource Center.  This release adds support for Visual Studio 2012, the ArcGIS Online World Geocoding Service, an ArcGISWebClient class to handle web requests to ArcGIS services, improved support for the ArcGIS Portal API, a new CsvLayer, numerous quality enhancements, and improved support for Windows Phone 8.  See the What’s New in 10.1.1 page for a complete list of what’s new in this release.

This is the final release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Phone to support the Windows Phone 7.1 platform.  For those developers who need to maintain existing Windows Phone applications that target the 7.1 platform, this release provides the latest updates and fixes for your applications.  If you are building an application targeting Windows Phone 8.0, you can include the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Phone assemblies that target Windows Phone 7.1.

Note that the version number of this release (10.1.1) is significantly different from the version numbers we’ve used in the past.  This was done to synchronize version numbers across Runtime SDKs (Android, iOS, Java SE, WPF) and the ArcGIS system.  This synchronization reflects a common path of evolution and parity going forward for all Runtime SDKs.

Developer Summit Europe

To build on the success of recent Developer Summit in California, we’ve decided to take the event on the road. Esri will be hosting 3 Dev Summits in Europe this September.

I hope developers from all over Europe and the world will come together in Rotterdam, Berlin or London (all 3 if you want). The technical sessions will focus on becoming more effective at building web, mobile and desktop applications. Senior Esri development staff will be presenting so you’ll get a chance to see what’s coming next. Registration information will be available soon but mark your calendar now and plan to join us in Europe.
