Yesterday, Microsoft announced a new released of the Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP which Microsoft introduced at the MIX conference back in March. According to Microsoft, the early tools preview has attracted more than 125,000 developers and designers from countries around the world and with yesterday's Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP refresh, developers and designers can now build Windows Phone 7 apps on the final release of Visual Studio 2010. The CTP refresh also updates the Windows Phone 7 OS image in the Windows Phone Emulator, updates APIs, updates documentation with new and expanded topics and addresses earlier discrepancies.
If you are a developer and would like to get more information on the Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP refresh, check out Charlie Kindles' blog post, Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP Refresh, where he outlines the updates and includes helpful tips for developers installing the new tools.
The refresh is available now and can be downloaded from Microsoft's Windows Phone developer site.
