WiX v3.10 Release Candidate build available

The WiX v3.10 Release Candidate build is now available! The focus of the WiX v3.10 release is supporting Visual Studio 2015 and Windows 10. As anticipated — almost like it was intentional — we’ve also fixed a number of bugs and implemented a small number of small features, but nothing big or risky.

We’re now ramping up the bug bar on WiX v3.10. That means bugs have to be really serious to get approved for v3.10. Don’t let that stop you from reporting bugs–we have plenty of numbers left in the v3.x series.

The plan for the RTM release of WiX v3.10 is to wait. Windows 10 ships 29-July and presumably Visual Studio 2015 ships shortly thereafter. As soon as Visual Studio 2015 RTM ships, we’ll put out a call for eyes to take a look and help verify that WiX continues to work with the RTM bits as expected. We’ll allow a short time to get feedback, then declare RTM.

Please download the RC release and help us get v3.10 across the finish line!
