Just after reaching a milestone of one million downloads, Microsoft's open-source Windows Community Toolkit is picking up one of its biggest updates yet. Coming in at version 4.0, the latest release brings developers access to new Microsoft Graph controls, a Fluent Design DataGrid control for UWP apps, and dark theme support in the sample app.
Here's a look at the highlights from Microsoft:
- New DataGrid with fluent design for all UWP developers
- Two new Microsoft Graph controls. PowerBIEmbedded enables embedding PowerBI dashboards in your UWP apps and PlannerTasksList allows users to work with Microsoft Planner tasks
- The Twitter, LinkedIn, and Microsoft Translator services have moved to the .NET Standard services package and available to even more developers, including desktop and Xamarin developers
- Strong-named packages for those developers that require strong-named assemblies
- Dark theme support for the sample app and theme chooser for each sample
Windows Community Toolkit was first launched in 2016 under another name: UWP Community Toolkit. The package is an open-source resource for Windows app developers, and has gradually expanded in scope with new controls, helpers, extensions, and more.
If you're a Windows developer and want to crack into all of what's new, you can grab Windows Community Toolkit version 4.0 and view the full release notes at GitHub.
