Microsoft has released a new Version of Siena, a very handy tool to easily create LOB apps for Windows 8.x. I’ve played loads with Siena in the last few month and the most important Feature I was missing was accessing Sharepoint Online. With the new release this will work. But there are more great features coming.
- Office 365 calendars, emails, contacts and files with Azure Active Directory integration
- Read/write capability for SharePoint Online lists
- Support for portrait and landscape aspect ratios
- Grouping and multi-selection of visual elements
- Support for Line Charts as a new visual element
