Later this summer, Microsoft will release the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, bringing a wide range of new features and improvements to the OS. Many of these have already appeared in the latest Windows 10 Insider Previews, including the most recent - build 14332 - which arrived earlier this week.
Before its general rollout, developers will need time to gear up for the various new capabilities offered in the update, which will help them to create more powerful and fully-featured apps. With that in mind, Microsoft has today released a new SDK Preview for the Anniversary Update.
To be able to use the new SDK Preview, you'll need to be running Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14332. However, as Microsoft points out, this is just a preview, and should only be installed on a test device, and not in a production environment. The company also warns that "if you are working on an application that you need to submit to the store, you should not install the preview."
Before installing it, you should also be aware of these known issues:
- Desktop App Converter
- The Desktop App Converter Preview (Project Centennial) will fail to run on the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14332. If you are a developer utilizing the converter tool to convert your desktop app to UWP, we suggest skipping Build 14332 until we can fix this issue.
- Known issue that currently blocks our users from injecting fake location data to their UWP applications running in the emulator
You can download Windows 10 Anniversary Update SDK Preview build 14332 via the developer section of the Windows Insider site.
Further information, including an overview of what's new in the preview, can be found on Microsoft's Building Apps for Windows blog.
