What does Windows 10 version 1909 mean to developers? As it turns out, absolutely nothing.
“Windows 10, version 1909 is a scoped set of features for select performance improvements, enterprise features and quality enhancements,” the Windows Developer Team writes in a new post. “Developers should be aware of this release, but no action is necessary at this time.”
Well, there you go. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
Because Windows 10 version 1909 is really Windows 10 version 1903 with a handful of new features, there are no new APIs for developers to target. So Microsoft will not issue a new version of the Windows SDK. Instead, the SDK for Windows 10 version 1903 is still the most up-to-date version.
OK, there is one thing, though it’s optional: In August, Microsoft released WinUI 2.2 with a new TabView control.
“We encourage everyone to use WinUI in their UWP apps – it’s the best way to get the latest Fluent design, controls, and is backward-compatible to Windows 10 Anniversary Update,” the team notes.
