    Neat. Will make a wish that it will someday support Xamarin Forms. A x-plat editor for XF, available on all app stores would be sweet.

    Looks like nice tool, but unable to lunch it. After splash screen it is gone.

    Cool! If you add Xamarin, there will be a great utility for developers. :D

    @Iggi131: We shipped v1.0.1 on Friday which resolved an issue with the app starting in certain regions.  Can you make sure your machine has pulled the update in the store and try again?  If not, please let me know.

    That's very nice, thank you! :)

    What will be the future of Blend related to XAML Studio? 

    At seems XAML Studio to Blend is like Visual Studio Code to Visual Studio, maybe?

    Thanks again!

    @SiaMortazavi that's a great analogy, I like it!

    XAML Studio is really a place to quickly iterate and prototype an idea to get it from nothing to 90%. Then pull it into Blend or Visual Studio to integrate it into your app and hook-in functionality.

    Seems to be nice. I wonder why efforts are not put in Visual Studio itself or Studio Code directly. I often wonder if there is somebody at Microsoft which know where the company is going??? Each new year, I find myself questioning more and more what's Microsoft Vision. It would be really nice if somebody can tell where the company is going with Winform, WPF, Xamarin and UWP. What's the goal? why they do not invest their time doing a standard: Datagrid, Docking and Ribbon. Why Microsoft shoot everywhere but does not complete a framework completely and tell what are their plan... if any!!!

    @Eric Ouellet - It seems to me that the goal is to get rid of WinForms and WPF and have DirectX > UI.Composition > Xaml as the stack running in UWP.

    Where can we make feature suggestions for the project?
