I'm glad to announce the availability of a new version 2.4 of SharpDX - a Managed .NET framework supporting the whole DirectX API - with two new major features:
- Adds support for Windows Phone 8: This new version provides full access to WP8 DirectX from .NET (Direct3D11.1, XAudio2, MediaEngine). It allows you to add 3D content seamlessly integrated into your XAML DrawingSurface very easily. Like SharpDX for Windows RT, you can develop a game using Direct3D from .NET without using C++.
- New SharpDX.Toolkit (beta), a high level API that greatly simplifies access to Direct3D11 by providing a XNA like API with the full power Direct3D11.1 The toolkit allows you to develop a 3D application to target Windows Desktop, Windows RT or Windows Phone 8 using exactly the same code base.
