The XAML Designer has been updated to improve performance and reliability amid all the new features added recently to increase developer production as well as the changes made over the past decade to support a variety of XAML (Extensible Application Markup Language) platforms. The Visual Studio team listened to community feedback for this significant update, writes Daniel Jacobson, Visual Studio program manager.
The updated designer is an early preview and is being shipped with known issues, so it’s only being released for a small subset of XAML scenarios – specifically, for developers building Universal Windows Platform (UWP) applications that target the Fall Creators Update.
For more details on what’s changed and how to try out the update, visit the Visual Studio Blog.
