Most of the C++/WinRT documentation I see is in the context of creating UWP apps. Now that Windows App SDK has replaced UWP as the most recent, recommended platform for creating Windows apps, what is the status of C++/WinRT? The Windows App SDK documentation mentions C# and .NET, and C++ and Win32 development but nothing about C++/WinRT. If creating an app using Windows App SDK, is C++/WinRT still relevant?

    When you create a WinUI3 project with the C++ template, the generated code is in C++/WinRT :
