Also not yet that different but finally available in a Beta, not in a Technical Preview anymore, and now officially announced, Andy Lees announced during his keynote a new version of Windows Phone Developer Tools, Microsoft made available yesterday evening already. Introduced at the MIX conference back in March, with the updated Beta, developers and designers can continue to build Windows Phone 7 apps on the final release of Visual Studio 2010. As always, also this update contains an an updated Windows Phone 7 OS image in the Windows Phone Emulator, updates APIs, updates documentation with new and expanded topics and addresses earlier discrepancies.
Windows Phone Tools Beta is now available from the Microsoft Download Center - free of charge! It doesn't requires any further Microsoft development tools but for sure it's limited to develop for Windows Phone 7 only!
Cheers ~ Arne
