I need to display latitude/longitude coordinates of the mouse pointer on the map, as the user moves the mouse.

I searched the examples and found this API [Map.ScreenToMap] in an older version of the .NET SDK for WPF, which has been retired.

Is there equivalent/similar functionality in the current Esri.ArcGISRuntime.WPF 100.12.0? Or do I need more than the free developer account for this kind of functionality?

I found the new API

MapView.ScreenToLocation(screenPoint)

Why were both the class and the method name changed? Anyone?

Regarding name change: To get naming consistency between 2D and 3D (ie maps and scenes). And as Joe said, this is an entirely new SDK. You'll find many similarities, but expect many concepts to be refined.

Runtime is a completely new API built from the ground up.
