New software definition tools for developers, from Microsoft to IBM, have been released for developers to test out, while other developers are now testing the software themselves.
In a post on the Windows developer site, Microsoft said that a new tool called Definition, which has been available in the Windows SDK since July 2016, was just released to developers.
This is Microsoft’s latest effort to help developers get the word out about new software definitions and make sure that their projects are not left behind.
“Today’s update marks the first step towards Microsoft’s goal of bringing developers and their users the tools they need to create more powerful, flexible, and reliable software definition applications,” Microsoft wrote.
“For developers and users, this means a faster and more reliable tool that enables developers to create software definition products that are easier to use, more accurate, and more easily extendable,” Microsoft added.
“For customers, this will mean easier and more cost-effective access to our suite of services.”
The new tools allow developers to add their own definitions and tests to existing software definition apps, and to integrate the definitions into their own apps.
Microsoft added that new software definition extensions can also be built into existing applications.
Microsoft says the new tools are available to developers for free, and it will be releasing them over the coming months.
