This is the 3rd iteration of toolkit updates I am pushing out. Like the other 2, this one builds on Windows Runtime WinRT app support for Windows Platform development.
This release also brings WinRT support close to what Silverlight version supported and finally drops support for Silverlight apps. The SL version is still available on nuget but it is unlikely to receive any updates.
SuperSlider (ColorSlider + ColorPicker) has a gotcha and its gonna need some clever work. Internally it uses code that monitors movement for updates and movements to prevent scrolling when the control is contained within Pivot, Hub or FlipView containers however lack of Touch class has forced me to use PointerPressed / PointerMoved and PointerReleased for these and in my tests, Pivot does not bubble those events and control doesn’t work correctly. Keep this in mind
Sample apps available in stores will be updated to reflect the changes
