Windows 10 SDK preview build 18290 now available for developers

Microsoft today launched another fresh Windows 10 SDK preview for developers, coming in at build number 18290. The latest release doesn't contain anything groundbreaking, but it brings the SDK preview up to par with the latest Windows 10 preview build, released to Fast ring Insiders last week.

The release notes for 18290 cite a new blend mode in the effect graph of the AcrylicBrush. However, this addition was included in the last SDK preview as well. Otherwise, there's a lengthy list of API additions and updates that developers can check out as well.

In any case, developers can get their hands on Windows 10 SDK Insider preview build 18290 at Microsoft now (opens in new tab).
