Feature Release

DevExpress WPF helps you deliver high-performance, line-of-business applications that fully address the needs of your enterprise. You can create apps that emulate Microsoft Office 2013 and Windows 8, while maintaining backward compatibility with previous versions of the Windows operating system. Whether you need to create an Outlook-inspired UI or need to touch-enable your app for Microsoft Surface, the DevExpress WPF Subscription will help you take your business solutions forward so you can deliver new, immersive experiences without abandoning the WPF platform and your existing code investments.
