Hey,

I love the framework! It really saves time when dealing with video in Windows 8 apps.
I am just trying to get my app running on Windows 8.1 and the framework is causing some issues there. (Specifically the Media Transport Controls)

I would just like to know if and when we can expect a Windows 8.1 compatible version of the Framework?

Thanks!

Version 1.3 beta 2 includes a version that targets Windows 8.1. There is a list of known issues on the download page which we expect to address by the Windows 8.1 GA date (at which time we will ship an update w/o the beta designation).

Feedback is always welcome and please let us know if you discover any issues not listed in the known issues list on the download page.

Thanks, Tim

fyi: I checked in updates to the source code for Win8.1 RTM compatibility. If you clone the git repository, you can locally build a new vsix by running Build.Vsix/BuildSDKs.Win81.bat on a Win8.1 machine with VS2013 RC.
