The annual Microsoft MiX11 event introduced mobile developers to the new upcoming Mango release in Las Vegas – details: http://bit.ly/hxd1qn
We had a great couple of days at this conference in Mandaly Bay. The post below, via IT Media, includes a few video clips from the mobile keynote. Interesting times ahead! [Eds]
Web developer conference of Microsoft has been held by the U.S. Las Vegas “MIX11″. It reported that the majors update of developing code “Mango” (mango) was offered to Windows Phone 7(WP7) within 2011, and a multilingual support including Japanese was expanded and for the first time in Mango during the second day in the news flash report of the keynote.
First of all, let’s see from the developer aspect though a reinforced point of the function in the Mango update of WP7 includes many things. The application program developer should develop other new features includeds considering it beforehand though it is enumerated that the performance has been greatly strengthened in above all. The reason for the developer is that it is necessary to note the treatment when it is big to change the function by being.
The new features included that can be greatly especially actually felt for the user might be a part of “Multitask”, “Further integration with the terminal function”, and “Cooperation of XNA and Silverlight” according to Microsoft though said that new API addition of 1500 or more will be done in Mango.
Microsoft is asking a confirmation about the multitask of the new features included, “Differ from the multitask that everyone imagines”. The framework that can execute by the power saving or more and manage the multitask easily is needed by limiting the battery and UI in a smart phone. Concretely, it is a form of being not able to process the backing ground at the same time by “Multitask”, and admitting a part of backing ground operation of the function in some conditions as for the application program that the third party developed. It might be comprehensible though is familiar for the iOS device users such as iPhone and iPad if it is thought it is almost the same as the behavior of “Multitask” there.
All application programs should correspond to “Fast Application Resume” as the assumption. This is a mechanism returning it soon when the application program that ends temporarily records the existing state of things when OS directs the switch of the application program, and it will be called next time. It is a function that is called “FastAppSwitching” etc. in iOS.
