Windows Community Toolkit 6.0 Available Now

Version 6.0 of Windows Community Toolkit arrives with ARM64 support to the toolkit and XAML Islands with .NET Core 3 support.

Recently, Microsoft announced the latest version of the Windows Community Toolkit, version 6.0, featuring ARM64 support to the toolkit and an update to XAML Islands for .NET Core 3 support.
 
The release also brings new features like the EyeDropper control and new Win32 notification helpers. There is also an update to preview of Microsoft Graph enabled XAML controls.
 
Starting with version 6.0, XAML Islands now enables a developer to heighten the look, feel, and functionality of an existing WPF, Windows Forms, or C++ Win32 application. It enables developers to use the latest Windows 10 UI features that are only accessible via UWP controls, for example - inking.

Another important update is that the Windows Community Toolkit now supports applications that are targeting ARM64. You can now take advantage of increased performance and battery life by running on the native architecture for devices like the Surface Pro X. Win2D also now supports ARM64.
 
The new version brings more Adobe After Effects features to Lottie-Windows and the new Eye Dropper control supports you to provide effortless color selection functionality to your app.
 
The team said that XAML Graph Controls Preview will enable you to easily authenticate and access Microsoft Graph in Windows 10 apps to create rich data and user connected experiences.
 
Currently, these controls are accessible as a preview of 6.1 release and will work with UWP apps and in WPF/WinForms for Win32 apps via XAML Islands on .NET Core 3. Additionally, with the aid of Xamarin and the Uno Platform, you will also soon be capable to use them on Android and iOS.
