Heading for March release notes post

This post was written by Dan Fernandez, Principal Group Program Manager in the Cloud + Enterprise Division.

Check out the latest release notes from March. We published some new documentation, as well as migrated more of the MSDN content over in an effort to make sure you can find all the right documentation in one place.

And this is just the beginning! Not only will we ensure that the content is properly relocated, but also that links point to the new content on automatically - if you catch any broken links, report them and we will try to resolve them as soon as possible.

New Features & Tools

We want to make sure that no matter what platform you are developing on, finding the right Microsoft API documentation is extremely easy. We've already launched API Browser experiences for Python, PowerShell and .NET, and today we are launching the JavaScript API Browser:

English Overlay Switcher

When reading localized content, it's now easier than ever to make sure that you can get the original version of the content by hovering over the translated text - or you can disable that altogether with the help of the new overlay switcher:

Image Lightbox

Wondering what is the best way to view that high-resolution image that is embedded in an article you are reading? You can now just click on it, and we will display the full resolution image, with a convenient way to zoom in to any part of it with the help of the new lightbox feature:
