Windows Mobile 6.5 tool kit is released
In another sure sign that we're marching steadily toward the launch of Windows Mobile 6.5, Microsoft has released the Software Developer Tool Kit, also known as an SDK. From Microsoft's overview:
From what we understand, coding for Windows Mobile 6.5 isn't vastly different than coding for 6.1, so there shouldn't be anything too earth-shattering here. But it does include APIs for gestures -- think flicking and scrolling -- which is new in Windows Mobile 6.5.
The SDK is available in a half-dozen languages, and there are separate builds for touchscreen and non-touchscreen devices. You can download them here.
Update: The WMDev team learns us on Twitter that this is just the 6.5 developer tool kit and you still have to have the full 6.0 SDK.
