The ArcGIS Pro 2.1 Beta is now available, and with it are new SDK updates.
At Pro 2.1, there are some significant enhancements to the Pro SDK, most notably new API namespaces for Annotation, Layout and the Utility Network. We’ll be discussing these areas in new posts over the coming weeks.
To try out the new Annotation and Layout functionality in the Pro Beta, you can sign up for the Early Adopter Community at the link above. The utility network functionality will be available with the Pro 2.1 and ArcGIS 10.6 Final releases which are planned for January.
New Learning Resources Available
A helpful new Pro SDK blog post by Uma Harano, from the ArcGIS Desktop SDK Team, is now available on GeoNet – Create custom Project and Application settings using the ArcGIS Pro SDK. The post walks through how these settings can be used and included with your add-in, and introduces a new Custom Settings ProGuide document.
Also, a new Live Training Seminar (LTS) is now available for Desktop Developers and GIS Managers: Building ArcGIS Pro Add-Ins and Solution Configurations. Rob Burke, an instructor with Esri Training Services, is back for another interesting seminar on the Pro SDK, and this time he dives into the topic of Solution Configurations. Rob’s LTS is another helpful resource for new Pro SDK developers.
