Quote:What's New in the November 2007 DirectX SDKThis version of the DirectX SDK contains the following new features, tools, and documentation.Changes in Visual Studio SupportThe March 2008 DirectX SDK will include support for Visual Studio 2008. At the same time, the DirectX SDK will drop support for Visual Studio 2003 while continuing to maintain support for Visual Studio 2005.XAudio2 Beta ImprovementsThis release includes several new features.XAPO is a new DSP plug-in model. Using XAPO,developers can write and use their own DSP effect in XAudio2 applications.XAudio2 now supports ADPCM on Windows. In addition, the ADPCM encoder tool, adpcmencode.exe, enables creation of ADPCM content.XAudio2 source voices can now run without source data. This is useful for oscillator modeling or other generative audio effects.Using IXAudio2::RegisterForCallbacks and IXAudio2::UnregisterForCallbacks, developers have more flexibility in registering callbacks in XAudio2, allowing them to be registered or unregistered on the fly.Using IXAudio2Voice::GetVoiceDetails, developers can get the creation flags, input channels, and sample rate of a voice.Using IXAudio2SourceVoice::Discontinuity, developers can indicate that a voice is not to expect any more buffers after the last one that is currently in its queue.Holiday 2008 titles may want to consider switching to XAudio 2, since no changes will be made to XAudio going forward.New and Updated SamplesThis release has several new samples.The AdvancedParticles sample shows a particle system that interacts with its environment. The system is managed entirely by the GPU.The GPUBoids sample shows a flocking algorithm managed entirely by the GPU.The NBodyGravity sample shows an n-body particle system managed entirely by the GPU.The XAudio2BasicSound sample demonstrates how to initialize the XAudio2 library and play a variety of sounds files.The XAudio2Sound3D sample demonstrates how to use XAudio2 with the X3DAudio library for spatialized audio.

Quote:Original post by SymLinkedSo they got rid of support for VS2003. Does that mean it won't work anymore or that they're simply not guaranteeing functionallity anymore?
Quote:Original post by SymLinkedIsn't that really late? I haven't kept up with the release schedule, but isn't 2008 supposed to be out sometime in the near future? Or is it coming out in March?
