Microsoft yesterday announced that it is renaming UWP Community Toolkit as Windows Community Toolkit. The toolkit was first released in 2016 and since then then, Microsoft has delivered regular updates adding new controls, helpers, services, extensions, object models and more.
“Enabling more developers is what the toolkit is all about, so starting with the next Windows Community Toolkit release, we are setting a goal to enable more Windows developers working on Windows 10 experiences to take advantage of toolkit components where possible. Therefore, the new name is reflective of this increased focus and more inclusive of all Windows developers,” wrote Nikola Metulev, Senior Program Manager, Windows Developer Team.
Microsoft is working with the community on the next major toolkit update which is expected to be released in May. Microsoft is developing this toolkit in open, so Microsoft is inviting developers to participate and contribute. Visit the GitHub repository for more details.
