Visual Studio Tools for Windows 10 Preview

Today we announced the Visual Studio 2015 Tools for Windows 10 Preview. These tools enable you to build Windows universal apps that run across all Windows 10 devices from Windows Phone to Xbox and Windows Store. In addition, you can also use these tools to build desktop Win32 apps that leverage Windows 10 APIs. You can read more in this blog post by Soma or on the building Windows apps blog post.

Become a Windows Insider today to download these tools and use them with Visual Studio 2015 CTP 6. We expect many changes between now and the final version so don’t use these tools to build applications for production scenarios.

As always, we look forward to your feedback on this technical preview. You can share your feedback via the Visual Studio Connect site, Send-a-Smile or on the Windows Insider forums.
