Windows 10 SDK Preview Build 18922 was released last month, which contained new API changes for pen input. Now the giant company has included some more APIs and a feature to support Device Guard signing.

 

Device Guard signing is a feature within Device Guard and it's available in the Microsoft Store for Business and Education. This will make it easier for you to sign your MSIX packages and ensure your users that the app comes from trusted sources.

 

You can download and install this build in a Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18945 or higher environment, having Visual Studio 2017 and/or Visual Studio 2019.

 

As it is from the development branch of Windows 10 (20H1), the final build will come early next year. Till that time, it will have more or less bug fixes and new API changes based on the ongoing development.

 

If you are a Windows Insider, the Preview SDK build can be downloaded from the developer section on Windows Insider site. Alternatively, you can also download the ISO Image of the SDK for offline installation.
