The Windows Phone 8.1 SDK resolves a rather annoying network issue with Windows Phone emulators. The previous 8.0 SDK registered a WP8 emulator as separate network device with its own IP address. This forced XAML Spy to use remote debugging to have apps running in the WP8 emulator connect to the XAML Spy service. Remote debugging is a feature that allows XAML apps running on (physical) remote devices to connect to the XAML Spy service running on the local dev box. For remote debugging to work correctly the firewall needs to be configured to allow inbound TCP connections.
Announcing the immediate availability of the XAML Spy April 2014 Update (version 2.1.0). This update supports the brand new Windows Phone 8.1 SDK, and includes a massive amount of fixes and improvements. The most prominent changes are described below, see the release notes for a complete overview of all changes.
