Visual Studio

Visual Studio 2015 was released on July 20, 2015 and includes many new features and updates. XAML Spy provides deep integration with Visual Studio 2015, and enables easy access to spying any XAML app within Visual Studio. Next to support for Visual Studio 2015, XAML Spy fully supports Visual Studio 2012 and 2013.

Windows 10 Preview

If you are still building UWP apps with the Windows 10 Preview SDK and Visual Studio 2015 RC, you need to stick with the previous release of XAML Spy (May 2015 Update, version 2.7.1). The XAML Spy July 2015 Update works with the RTM release of the Windows 10 SDK exclusively, there is no support for the Windows 10 Preview SDK.

Other changes

This updates also addresses an issue with WPF apps targetting .NET 4.6. See the release notes for more details.
