Breaking Changes

ecmangen.exe removal from the SDK: ecmangen.exe will no longer ship with the Windows SDK. Developers who rely on ecmangen for event manifest creation are advised to install the Windows Creator Edition of the SDK to obtain the file. Developers may also use notepad or other XML editor of choice for manifest creation. A schema file is available on MSDN to aid in manifest creation, for tools that support it.

API Updates and Additions

When targeting new APIs, consider writing your app to be adaptive in order to run correctly on the widest number of Windows 10 devices. Please see Dynamically detecting features with API contracts (10 by 10) for more information.

The following are the API changes since the 16232 Preview SDK, please reference that list. The TreeView control has been removed, but will be back soon in the next release of Windows and the Preview SDK.

The Preview SDK and Mobile Emulator can be downloaded from developer section on Windows Insider.
