Microsoft Will Update Windows 10 SDK before End of June



According to Mary Jo Foley, Microsoft will update Windows 10 SDK Insider Preview by end of this month. Last update was before Build in April.

Starting from there, Microsoft will try to pair each Windows 10 build with matching SDK and mobile emulators. Not stated clearly, but looks like SDK and mobile emulators will come with Windows 10 build automatically, so you don’t have to install it separately. So that when restart Visual Studio, new SDK and emulators are already there. Also, the Microsoft blog says it goes with fast ring updates.

I think most important thing would be adding new Visual Studio templates for UWP apps. Not sure if that’s part of it.
