  • Project wizard. Visual Studio Tools for Tizen provide a number of different options to build applications. For instance, you can build an application that runs on a single device type or an application that runs on multiple device types. You can build an application that runs on Tizen only or an application that runs on multiple platforms. The project wizard helps you to select the right project type with step-by-step guides.

  • New tools. Tizen-specific tools were added to further improve your productivity including a certificate manager, emulator manager, emulator control panel, and manifest editor.
