See http://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2015/07/14/bringing-componentization-to-the-web-an-overview-of-web-components/ (part 1) and https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2015/07/15/microsoft-edge-and-web-components/ (part 2) for more information on our Web Components thoughts, plans, and roadmap.
Really hoping the "Backlog" status is just an oversight and they have internally started on this. This definitely seems like something that should be in progress with the amount of interest.
This work is now in Microsoft Edge Insiders Preview 17074 and higher.

First thing I looked for when the new section was created. Would be a very fun API to see added.
Thanks for this suggestion! We totally understand that there’s a ton of icons at various sizes that you have to create when building a new app. In the future, we will look at how we can improve this experience (vector images would likely be the solution).
In the meantime, here’s two great resources that help generate all the various scale factor images…- Photoshop actions (for full control): http://blogs.msdn.com/b/madenwal/archive/2015/11/24/photoshop-templates-amp-actions-for-generating-image-assets-for-windows-10-uwp-applications.aspx - Visual Studio extension (fastest option): https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/09611e90-f3e8-44b7-9c83-18dba8275bb2?SRC=VSIDE

Since I don't think we're going to be getting the vector assets soon. The Modern UI Icons site now contains a page to generate all your assets based on one vector logo. Hopefully until MS supports vector assets this tool can save you guys some development time.Templarian shared this idea ·
I think assuming a developer's computer is newer than 5 years is fine (almost every processor built after the Core 2 Duo age has SLAT capabilities). Requiring backward compatibility on such a small user base is probably not worth the developer effort.
[Usually, the idea is to support bugs, but this is one of the times where the dev effort could be better spent]

Looks like we totally misread this when recently traiging it. After I whipped up a quick sample, it was clear the object itself didn’t serialize. Thank you for pushing back on us.
We are working on opening up an issue on the CoreFx github. https://github.com/dotnet/corefx/issues/9184
It’s great to see that XAML for Live Tiles is so highly requested!
In Windows 10, we created Adaptive Tile Notifications, which partially addresses this issue. Adaptive is a lightweight XML way to define your tile notification’s appearance. It isn’t as powerful as XAML, and it isn’t animated, but it’s a step in the right direction. The MSN Weather app uses Adaptive to create their rich and beautiful live tile.
Learn more about Adaptive here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/tiles_and_toasts/archive/2015/06/30/adaptive-tile-templates-schema-and-documentation.aspx
In the future, we’ll definitely look at how we can make Live Tiles even better, potentially by supporting XAML. There are performance and other implementation issues, but we definitely understand the need for it.

Thanks for the suggestion; I’m marking this as under review for implementation in a future release of the Store.
