New Developers Beta

    Question

  • I entered the windows 8 first apps contest but did not get selected as a finalist. I was looking forward to getting the new build of windows 8 that finalists were privy to. Can you tell me when the new version will be available to everyone? I would still like to work on my app and have it ready for release when windows 8 is launched, it has been difficult to work with the current build because of the many unimplemented development features.

  • I doubt that the version will be released. Why can't you wait for the official beta in February?
