Great! I'd figure it'd be up by tommorow, or very soon after.

Odd the way that parts of it appeared before others [smile]

From what I can see, the Developer Center hasn't been updated yet, so it could be a few hours before the updates appear..

Damn, do you people refresh the MSDN page like it was the GDNet Lounge? Somebody always knows the instant the SDK appears.

I think it's due to RSS broadcasts or something similar. You can sign up for notifications from MS downloads I think.

I remember one of the Visual Studio team "thanking" RSS for killing MSDN downloads the day VStudio2005 was released [lol]

I can confirm it's "official". There will be an update on the Developer Center this morning. The problem, if you want to call it that, is that the SDK (and other DX downloads) pop up on the RSS feed for recent downloads (feed link below).

The DirectX Developer center, which is my baby, requires a bit more human interaction. I get notified just like you guys once the link goes live (no kidding!). Then I post the additional "What's New" and readme stuff and get it propped to our MSDN people, who review the information to make sure I don't post some terrible political rant or naughty pictures, then it all goes live on MSDN. The update to the DirectX Developer center should be live in about 4-5 hours from now.

And now you know the REST of the story :-)

MSDN Latest downloads link

EDIT: Made the 'latest downloads' a clickable link, it's huge URL broke the page formatting!

Hmm, maybe I broke it when I tried to make it a link [headshake]

Have they ported DirectX runtime to Mac?

From the direct download site:

Supported Operating Systems: Macintosh; TabletPC; ....

Well that would be an interesting development. I don't think DX runs on Mac's, nor is it planned to.

Oops. We will fix that.

No, the DX runtime is not targeted to the Mac.

The downloads page lists a few updates to things like DX10 and D3DX, but doesn't mention MDX updates. Surely more has gone into MDX 2.0...

The only change to MDX2.0 I've noticed is that Mesh.NumberOfFaces was renamed to Mesh.FaceCount . Other than that, I havn't noticed anything different, though I'm sure some stuff has changed, and something was added. I wonder if the D3DXIntersectTri equivalent is still missing.

[EDIT] looks like Geometry.IntersectTriangle was added, so that's another change :).
