    As Harlequin points out, the latest Windows Phone version is 7.5. I don't believe anything has been announced yet about newer versions.

  • #1 - Wrong forum
    #2 - There's no info on Windows Phone 8, so just keep developing for Windows Phone 7 as I highly doubt WP8 won't be able to run WP7 apps. That would kill the WIndows Phone ecosystem if that were true.
