ArcGIS Earth is built on the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET. The latest release of ArcGIS Runtime brings major improvements to the July 2021 release of ArcGIS Earth, including an expanded config.xml sharing workflow, an improved Configuration Manager UI, as well as additional enhancements.
In the previous April 2021 release, config.xml distribution was improved across the ArcGIS ecosystem. Starting with ArcGIS Online 9.1 and the upcoming ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1, ArcGIS Earth configuration files can be uploaded and hosted as .xml files. In the newest release of ArcGIS Earth, users have the ability to share local configuration files with their organization as .XML files directly through the ArcGIS Earth Configuration Manager.
