We are pleased to inform you that the Beta 11.18 of C#/XAML for HTML5 - the extension for Visual Studio that lets you build cross-platform HTML5 apps in standard C# and XAML - is available for download!
Learn More about C#/XAML for HTML5.
Here is what's new (since Beta 11.17):
- Ability to specify the location of the "Output" folder (the folder where the html/js app is generated), and ability to specify the Output folder structure. Documentation:
- New, cleaner "Output" folder structure, with only index.html and one folder.
You can revert to the previous structure, if you prefer, by following the instructions contained in the link above.
- Improved support for XDocument, XNode, XElement, XName, XText, and XContainer (including support for XDocument.Parse, and XDocument.ToString() to serialize/deserialize XML)
(Coming soon: XAttribute, XNamespace, Elements(), Descendants() - for the moment you can use .Nodes() instead)
Note: We are also working on the DataContractSerializer, which will use those features and work much better than the current implementation of the XmlSerializer. We are also working on a new implementation of the WCF stack, to fix some of the current limitations and improve the WCF experience. Stay tuned for updates!
- Fixed issue with WCF services returning void (on VS2015) (#721)
We are also working on many other features and we will release them as soon as they are ready.
