Windows Phone 8 SDK updated with support for upcoming GDR2 update

Windows Phone 8

Microsoft has released an updated Windows Phone 8 SDK for developers who are building apps for Microsoft’s mobile platform. The update to the SDK adds support for the upcoming GDR2 update, which has already begun to be released on select handsets. The version number is 10322.

“The Windows Phone SDK 8.0 Update for Windows Phone 8.0.10322 adds four new emulator images to an existing installation of Windows Phone SDK 8.0. This update requires Visual Studio 2012 Update 2. Using this update, you can test how your apps will run on devices that have build 8.0.10322 or higher of Windows Phone 8,” the SDK description reads.

While GDR2 update rolls out, Microsoft is working on GDR3 which is expected to bring support for 5 or 6 inch Windows phone devices, as well as quad-core chipsets. This update will debut first on new devices, then eventually be released for existing devices. Microsoft is also working on Windows Phone Blue, which is rumored for release in early 2014.
