The Transition to ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET

Two years ago, we announced the creation of a new, high-performance ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET to support offline workflows, sync-enabled feature services, shapefiles, client-side labeling, and much more. The SDK includes three APIs that support building ArcGIS Runtime apps for Windows Desktop (WPF), Store, and Phone. The APIs share a common design and structure, which encourages sharing implementation logic across multiple Windows platforms. To prepare WPF developers for the transition from the Runtime SDK for WPF to the Runtime SDK for .NET, we published a blog post and shared a technical session on the topic. We encourage you to utilize this information today and, if necessary, contact our Support team to answer any questions as the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF product moves from mature support to the retired phase.- Esri Support Services
