WPF Tips Update - The Extended WPF Toolkit Has a New Home

Hello WPF fans! You may have noticed that I am a fan of Xceed's free Extended WPF Toolkit. I am actually a huge fan of free tools and productivity gains in general.

This week when I started working on WPF Tip #16, I was pleased to notice that Xceed has released v3.1 of the Extended WPF Toolkit and moved the source code from CodePlex to GitHub! The move to GitHub was, of course, motivated by Microsoft announcement that CodePlex is shutting down in the coming months.

The changelog for v3.1.0 includes 37 fixes and enhancements. The Plus Edition snagged an additional 19 fixes and improvements including a Windows 10 theme, but Plus received v3.1.0 last year. It pays to pay, it seems.

Learn all about the toolkit on GitHub or check out WPF Tip #11. This tip was my introductory post about the controls. And be sure to stay tuned for more WPF Tips about these controls and lots more!

Happy coding!
