Windows Phone Developer Tools January 2011 Update Available Now

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of the Windows Phone Developer Tools January 2011 Update. The January Update is comprised of two installation files; it includes updated reference assemblies, a new version of the Windows Phone OS emulator image and several minor bug fixes in addition to those previously released as part of the October 2010 Update.

The January Update provides updated Silverlight controls that enable copy and paste functionality. It is important to note that most applications already published will automatically receive the benefits of copy and paste when customers update their devices with the upcoming Windows Phone 7 OS update.

Download the updated Windows Phone Developer Tools and read the installation instructions on the Download Center page. Download pages for additional languages will be published later this week. In the meantime, use the following direct links:
