ArcGIS Pro 1.4 is now available, and included are many new updates to the Pro SDK.  As with each release, the SDK can be upgraded from within Visual Studio at the Visual Studio Gallery (recommended) and also can be downloaded from My Esri.

Some of the 1.4 SDK enhancements include:

  • Configurations – a new add-in pattern / template which allows you to customize the Pro UI/UX at start-up.  See the new ProConcepts and ProGuide docs for more information.
  • Light/dark theme styling – with the new Pro 1.4 light and dark theme capability, the SDK allows you to style your add-ins and configurations for the best visibility.  See the new ProGuide for details.
  • API enhancements –  there are new classes and methods for working with geodatabase joins and SQL syntax, horizontal/vertical datums, and also new controls.  See the What’s New page in the API reference for details.

There is a helpful “What’s New for Developers at 1.4” page in the API reference which includes a new Highlights section with links to some of the more notable API/SDK change content in the release.  The What’s New page includes an API Changes section with a full listing of all the new additions.

Also, as with each release, there are new code samples, and new ProConcept and ProGuide docs available on the Pro SDK Documentation Wiki, links below.

In the coming weeks, we’ll do some follow-up posts on a few of the key enhancement areas listed above.  We hope you’ll check out the links above, read up on some of the new content, and try out the new samples and templates.
