Last month when we announced the release of ArcGIS Runtime 100.8 we reported that the Local Server SDK was still being finalized… today ArcGIS Runtime Local Server SDK 100.8 is available for download from the ArcGIS for Developers site.
This is an incremental compatibility release with the following updates:
- Local Server ArcGIS Pro-based components updated to version 2.5 to provide support for map and geoprocessing packages created with ArcGIS Pro 2.5.x.
- Local Server ArcMap-based components updated to 10.8 to provide support for map and geoprocessing packages created with ArcMap 10.8.x.
This release also comes with an important deprecation notice:
- Support for ArcGIS Desktop 10.x packages with ArcGIS Runtime Local Server is deprecated. Version 100.8 will be the last ArcGIS Runtime Local Server release to support ArcGIS Desktop 10.x packages. The next version will require packages to be created with ArcGIS Pro.
Note: If you are using ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (Esri.ArcGISRuntime.WPF) you will need to update any projects referencing `Esri.ArcGISRuntime.LocalServices` from 100.6 to 100.8 via NuGet.org or alternatively download from NuGet.org to the local Esri NuGet source created by the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET Visual Studio extension (`%localappdata%\Esri\NuGet`) and then update your projects.
ArcGIS Runtime Local Server is an optional component for the ArcGIS Runtime SDKs for .NET, Java, and Qt. It provides world-class scientific spatial analysis capabilities and data connectivity for your custom offline desktop applications. For more information please see the Local Server guide topics for .NET, Java and Qt.
We hope you’ll find these updates to ArcGIS Runtime Local Server useful as you continue to build amazing technology for your customers with ArcGIS Runtime.
