Microsoft just released the WinUI 3 – Project Reunion 0.5 Preview. This release is the first time that WinUI 3 ships inside of the Project Reunion package and should make it easier for developers to take advantage of modern APIs for their apps.
In addition to making it a bit easier to install the latest tools for app development, this preview also adds new options.
Here’s what’s new in WinUI 3 for the Project Reunion 0.5 preview:
- In-app acrylic is now supported!
- The Pivot control is no longer supported, and has been deprecated in WinUI 3. We recommend using the NavigationView control for your in-app navigation scenarios.
- WinUI 3 and Project Reunion will be supported down-level to Windows 10 version 1809 – it requires build 17763 or newer.
The update also includes several bug fixes, which are detailed in a Microsoft doc.
If you’re new to developing with WinUI 3, here’s a description of if from Microsoft:
Windows UI Library (WinUI) 3 is a native user experience (UX) platform for building modern Windows apps. It works with both desktop/Win32 and UWP apps, and includes Visual Studio project templates to help get started building apps with a WinUI-based user interface as well as a NuGet package that contains the WinUI libraries.
In more simple terms, Project Reunion is an effort that helps make modern Windows apps. Developers can use a number of languages and setups to create apps that will work well on Windows 10 and Windows 10X going forward.
