Windows 8.1 Update: New WDK Supports Visual Studio Express

As you would already know if you followed us on Twitter <https://twitter.com/osrdrivers> there's good news for the driver development community. Starting with the release of WDK 8.1 Update, the WDK now supports Visual Studio Express. Yay! The tools for building drivers are once again free for all to use. There ARE a few limitations: No conversion from sources/dirs to VS Projects... and the Code Analysis warnings that are supported are very limited (odd, that last one... but it's apparently there's a limit on what the VS folks are willing to give away for free). You can read more about it in our Dev Blog here: http://bit.ly/1j4iFE5 Peter OSR @OSRDrivers (An Aside: We've moved our Dev Blog from OSR Online to the OSR Corporate site temporarily to make way for a wholesale update of OSR Online... and because creating content using the old OSR Online infrastructure has become a real burden. While we're going to try to maintain our blog content in both places, for the foreseeable future you should check OSR.COM first)

Windows 8.1 Update: New WDK Supports Visual Studio Express

Is there any other changes in the new WDK? I ask because I notice that the WDK 8.1 seems no longer available. This is a concern for those of us who want to maintain the same environment as our customers. Of course I am also curious since if there are changes then we need to update our environments in general.
