from what ive been able to gather, DirectUI is a high(er) level ui framework utilizing xaml but written in native code on top of direct2d

i havent heard of any new managed version of direct2d. However, it looks like interoping with the regular native direct2d will be alot easier via the windows runtime, possibly allowing us to write c# but compile it to native code. it also seems like you can target directUI from c# as well

no one really knows though.. build cant come soon enough Tongue Out
