Microsoft has released Visual Studio 2015 CTP 6, a preview of the development tools for Windows 10. In order to access the new tools, developers must be Windows Insiders and must have downloaded the Windows 10 Technical Preview.
One of the most highly anticipated aspects of Windows 10 is the ability for developers to create “universal” apps that can run on any Windows device, and these new tools allow developers to experiment with that ability. “With Windows 10, it is now possible to have a single universal app project that when deployed can run on all Windows 10 devices like PC, Phone, Tablet, or Xbox,” blogged S. “Soma” Somasegar, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Developer Division. “However, just as on Windows 8.1, you still have the option to have multiple projects in your solution that you can tailor for functionality and form-factor exhibited by various devices running Windows 10 and can maximize code sharing across those projects using Shared projects.”
