Windows Phone Mango is almost here and we are rebooting the show to get you ready for it.  Larry Lieberman, Product Manager in Windows Phone developer marketing, is joining as a host for the show so we can get you shows more often (yay!)

In this episode, we provide a high level overview of some of what we think are the most exciting new features for developers in Mango; some of the issues and concerns that you should be aware of in preparing your applications for Mango, and some of the application compatibility issues you should be aware of. 

As of 10 PM on 8/22, the RC of the developer tools is now available here, Mango submission is also available for registered developers, the broad announcement will come in the next few days. 

Here are some places to look for more information about building applications for Windows Phone Mango:

In the coming weeks, we'll be providing you deeper insights into how to take advantage of all the exciting new features in Mango, including:

  • The nuts and bolts of Background Agents with Peter Torr, Program Manager extraordinaire
  • Accelerating your way through the certification process, with Steve Bell
  • And more!

      A good clip.

      A little misleading at the beginning.   Jaime talked about the 7712 release and that there was another drop coming, but he is confusing the phone software and the SDK.   The SDK RC came a few days ago, and I was told there is no dev version after 7712.   After that, the next step is production Mango.  As I understand it, devs have to restore their phone backup using Zune and then Zune will tell them that there is an update available.

      Now, all we have to do is to cut though the carrier red tape that left NoDo "testing" for a month or more, and we'll be doing well.  I for one am hoping for production Mango (with some updated drivers for my LG Quantum) in October or earlier.

      @joebelfiore, are you listening?  Thanks!
