During its latest Developer Day stream, Microsoft announced that the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update SDK is now available for developers to download. As Microsoft explains, the Fall Creators Update SDK delivers a number of new capabilities that should help developers create engaging Mixed Reality experiences, modernize apps for the workplace, and better monetize their apps.

Of course, the Fall Creators Update also marks the introduction of Microsoft's new Fluent Design System. Developers will have access to UX building blocks, guidelines, and tools to help them integrate aspects of the new design language, like acrylic transparency, gesture actions, connected animations, and more.

The Fall Creators Update itself is set to launch to the public on October 17. Though Microsoft has offered preview SDK releases while the update was being tested, the availability of the Fall Creators Update SDK will allow developers to finalize their app updates and submit them to the Windows Store ahead of the public launch of the update. If you're a developer, you can learn more about what's new in the Fall Creators Update SDK at Microsoft.
