Microsoft has started seeding a new version of the Windows Phone Developer Tools to registered WP7 developers. That word comes straight from Bandon Watson, who confirmed today's release on the PPCGeeks podcast last night, and also announced that the Windows Phone Developer Tools software was about to cross one million download mark.
Microsoft is touting copy and paste as "easy and intuitive" and it's expected that the official rollout of the feature set will happen in the next few weeks. Copy and paste isn't the only upgrade the update will bring to the platform, it'll also allow for better marketplace search and faster performance.
This update comes shortly after Microsoft posted up instructions on how to troubleshoot your update. All of this signals that Microsoft is getting ready to push out the update and finally bring some of the feature that users have been asking for. Microsoft states:
One question we hear often is: What's next for Windows Phone? We're obsessive about listening closely to our customers and improving our phone software. So over the next few months, look for updates that add some new features you've asked for and also tune up your phone's performance.
