Windows Vista SDK Goes Gold
Microsoft on Monday signed off on the Windows Vista SDK, or software development kit, which will enable developers to create applications for the next-generation Windows release. The SDK, complete with code samples, tools and documentation will be available via MSDN and distributed at next month's PDC conference in LA.
The kit will simply be dubbed "Windows SDK" upon release, as it includes both WinFX and Vista-specific documentation. Microsoft will also post an online version of the docs, which can be browsed by any developer. It's not clear if the Windows SDK will replace the company's current Platform SDK.
