i didnt want to hijack the line endings thread so im starting a new one
The folks over at the MDL forms have discovered some interesting stuff
- Jupiter appreas to be a UI framework called DirectUI (not to be confused with the nativeDirectUI that programs like msn and zune uses ) it lives in Windows.UI.DirectUI.
- .net 4.5 appears to be included by default in win8 and it contains the async stuff, as well as a System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime namespace in mscorlib and assemblies such as System.Runtime.WindowsRuntime.dll, System.Threading.Tasks.Dataflow.dll, System.Reflection.Production and System.Runtime.Serialization.OData
- Both immersive windows and 'jupiter' windows can be created from unmanaged code.
- It appears the difference between immersive windows and regular ones is not huge, by changing a registry key, they have been able to launch immersive windows just as normal ones.
