What to Expect from the RTM Version of Development Tools ?
Thursday September, 16th Microsoft should release the RTM version of development tools for Visual Studio 2010.
- Panorama and Pivot controls should be shipped with the SDK and available to developers
- Bing Maps controls will also be available for the RTM but maybe in a separate download
- There would be a way to know the current user-selected theme (dark or light one) to be able to set styles accordingly
- The InputScope to customize keyboards (numbers, email, web etc. ) should be finalized
We can still hope for, but chances are slim: level of integration in the Calendar API (none) or Contact (only the phone number and the email are available right now).
