I am really excited to announce that there is a new build of the Windows Media Center SDK available for download on the Windows Vista beta site. This new build of the SDK is designed to support the Windows Vista February CTP refresh build 5342.
You can find more details about some of the new features in this build of the Media Center SDK, including some screenshots in this post on the Media Center Sandbox site. Some of the highlights are the following:
- Enhanced Media Center Markup Language (MCML) sample content
- McmlPad is now a standalone tool in addition to a Media Center add-in
- MCML web application support
- Visual Studio project and item templates
If you are on the Windows Vista beta program and are interested in Media Center and Media Center development, I encourage you to check out the article on the Media Center Sandbox site and download and try out the SDK.
In addition, Charlie has created a new forum to discuss Media Center development issues. I encourage you to use this forum to ask any questions you have about this new build of the Media Center SDK, let us know any suggestions you have for future versions, or ask any general Media Center development questions you might have.
