Hello, Windows 10 IoT Core: public release available!
We are excited to announce the public release of Windows 10 IoT Core for the Raspberry Pi 2 and the MinnowBoard Max. Visit the Windows IoT Dev Center to choose your target board, then walk through the steps to provision your board, acquire the tools, and get started Making. This release of Windows 10 IoT Core requires a development machine running the 7/29/2015 release of Windows 10 (Build 10240) and Visual Studio 2015.
New in this release
The first public preview of Windows 10 IoT Core was released at the //build/ conference, and we’ve made great progress since then. Perhaps most importantly, long-awaited support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity has arrived. The full list of new features and improvements is too long to list here but here’s a nice sampling:
- Improved support for Python and Node.js, including a new Express Node.js project template
- GPIO performance on the Raspberry Pi 2 has improved by 8X to 10X
- Analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and pulse-width modulation (PWM) are now supported via breakout boards and ICs
- New Universal Windows Platform (UWP) APIs give apps easy control over system management features like time zone and network connections
Developers, Developers, Developers
The developer experience has been a high priority for our team as we’ve built Windows 10 IoT Core, and we hope this shows when constructing apps for this platform. Our philosophy is that we want to make it easy for developers to use the languages and frameworks they prefer to build IoT device apps. This means full support for the standard UWP languages like C++, C#, JS and VB, but it also means bringing support – including full tools, debugging, and project systems – for Node.js and Python. The project templates for the standard UWP languages create projects that look like standard UWP projects, but for Node.js and Python we’ve worked hard to make these apps look and feel just like they do on other platforms. The code below shows a complete Node.js UWP app that reads from an I2C sensor and serves up a web page with the data (and you can get the sample here).
