Windows Phone Developer Tools Updates

Microsoft launched the Windows Phone 7 on 11th October and the roll out of devices has already started in a few countries in Asia and Europe as well as in the US. Recently they have also released an update for the Windows Phone Developer Toolkit.

The latest October update includes:

Windows Phone Capability Detection Tool – Detects the phone capabilities used by your application. When you submit your application to Windows Phone Marketplace , Microsoft performs a code analysis to detect the phone capabilities required by your application and then replaces the list of capabilities in the application manifest with the result of this detection process. This tool performs the same detection process and allows you to test your application using the same list of phone capabilities generated during the certification process. For more information on How to: Use the Capability Detection Tool, click here.

–  Windows Phone Connect Tool – Allows you to connect your phone to a PC when Zune® software is not running and debug applications that use media APIs. For more information on How to: Use the Connect Tool, click here.

–  Updated Bing Maps Silverlight Control – Includes improvements to gesture performance when using Bing™ Maps Silverlight® Control.

Important: You should already have the RTM version of the WP7 developer tools installed on your system which is powered by Windows 7 or Vista in order to install this update.
