Microsoft has launched a new web site for its brand new WinUI library. WinUI stands for Windows UI, and the library has been created to supercharge developer projects with Fluent controls, modern features, and other UWP/XAML improvements.
The library allows using WinUI XAML components in WPF, WinForm and native apps. Microsoft has added most of the modern user interface elements to the WinUI framework.
The framework has been created for both Windows 10 and Windows 10X. Latter will be running native Win32 apps in containers, so Microsoft is interested in getting app versions native to Windows 10X. It is now possible with WinUI. Microsoft is expecting developers to update their apps by using the modern platform and make them compatible with Windows 10X.
Microsoft is planning to release WinUI 3.0 as a major update to the Windows 10 UI in 2020. The WinUI 3.0 Alpha, a pre-release build of WinUI 3.0, is available HERE.
The new web site organizes the information related to WinUI in a useful way. There are docs, source code, and a blog.
It contains details for most of the features of the framework. You can explore it here:
