We now support both a Retail Evaluation feed and a Retail feed for the Azure Sphere OS. The 19.03 release will initially be available via the Retail Evaluation feed. The regular Retail OS feed will continue to deliver version 19.02; we plan to upgrade it to 19.03 in two weeks.
The Azure Sphere 19.02 release is available today. In our second quarterly release after public preview, our focus is on broader enablement of device capabilities, reducing your time to market with new reference solutions, and continuing to prioritize features based on feedback from organizations building with Azure Sphere.
Today, the Azure Sphere team is releasing an update to the 18.11 release. This will be an Azure Sphere OS release only and will be released via over-the-air update. There will be no update to the Azure Sphere SDK. This release brings improved Wi-Fi reliability. Please see the release notes for more details.
Just this week, we saw the release of Azure Sphere documentation, which covers a range of topics from architecture (an example is included in this blog post), key concepts, developing applications, and deploying those applications over-the-air to devices in the field. Also included is a QuickStart guide, tutorials and a selection of best practices – all of which will help you rapidly get up and running with your dev kits. We thank you for your patience, we expect devkits to begin reaching you in the coming weeks.
Today at RSA 2018, we announced the preview of Microsoft Azure Sphere, a new solution for creating highly-secured, Internet-connected microcontroller (MCU) devices. Azure Sphere includes three components that work together to protect and power devices at the intelligent edge.
