Windows Embedded Compact 7 Update 3 available!

The Windows Embedded Compact team has been super busy lately and here is why: the third update to Windows Embedded Compact 7 has just been released. You can download it from here.

This update provides new tools, application updates and bug fixes for Windows Embedded Compact 7:

  • The Compact Test Kit (CTK) has two new tools: The Compact Automation Tool Solution (CATS) for automating test scenarios on Compact 7 devices and The Compact Stress Tool for automating stress tests on Compact 7 devices are included with this update.
  • Also included is new Silverlight for Windows Embedded (SWE) sample code for the Compact 7 Media Player. Previously provided only in binary format, the Media Player sample code is now included in source code and a previous dependency on the compositor in the sample code has been removed, improving performance across all hardware configurations.
  • Finally the update contains approximately 125 code defect fixes for the Compact 7 operating system, Platform Builder tools and the Compact Test Kit
  • A Documentation update will be released to MSDN to coincide with this release. It contains 72 significant Documentation fixes, updated documentation for the new CTK features and 4 new Whitepapers.

    It's great news to see Embedded Compact to continue to be developed for those scenarios where Embedded Standard may not be appropriate.  How about Embedded Handheld, .NET Compact (v4.0 or v4.5 maybe), and support for more recent versions of Visual Studio (VS11 maybe)?  Now that the plans for Winodws 8 have been publicly detailed, it would be nice to see the same for Embedded Handheld for those scenarios such as rugged barcode scanners, etc.
