Microsoft releases Windows 10 SDK Preview Build 17754 and second preview of Visual Studio 2017 version 15.9

Microsoft released yesterday the Windows 10 SDK preview build 17754 as well as the second preview of Visual Studio 2017 version 15.9. After installing the latter, developers will see that the latest Windows 10 Preview SDK is now included as an optional component in the Universal Windows Platform development Workload, which is pretty convenient for accessing the latest Windows 10 APIs right away.

Visual Studio 2017 version 15.9 Preview 2 comes with the following new features for developers (more details are available here):

  • You can now import and export an installation configuration file that specifies which workloads and components should be installed with an instance of Visual Studio.
  • Step back in debugger is now available in C++.
  • We fixed several bugs in the F# compiler when working with byref types.

Visual Studio 2017 version 15.9 Preview 2 shouldn’t be used in a production environment, though you can use this latest preview release alongside other versions of Visual Studio. You can download this latest preview from the Visual Studio website, and the Windows 10 SDK preview build 17754 is available on this page.
