An updated preview of Project Reunion With the Project Reunion 0.8 preview you can create and modernize your Windows apps seamlessly for both client and cloud endpoints. To get started, simply install the Project Reunion Visual Studio template and you’ll have access to the project templates and APIs you need. When you build an app that uses Project Reunion, you get access to: coherent and modern interactions and UX with WinUI 3, great system performance and battery life, an experience optimized for the device hardware, and hassle-free app discovery and management. It’s all built on top of existing Desktop (aka Win32) features available to adopt incrementally at a much faster pace since they are decoupled from the Windows OS. Lastly, you can try the new unpackaged app support preview in Project Reunion. This allows you to use AppLifecycle, MRT Core, and DWriteCore in your unpackaged (non-MSIX) apps! You can learn more about Project Reunion 0.8 preview and provide feedback in our GitHub. We’re constantly evaluating feedback and if there’s something missing, we want to know!
