      Excellent feedback. We are not working on supporting Xamarin for now but if this suggestion get a lot of traction we can update our priorities

        An always happy Friday as I just got the TFS complete email :) As this hasn’t hit an insider preview SDK, i’m going to mark this still as “working on it” still BUT … this will be coming to an insider build near you!

        This item heart is markup extensions. There is one item that will not be there however that is relevant to markup extensions, IServiceProvider. I created a new item for that but we are working on this item [https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-universal-windows-platform/suggestions/19416094-iserviceprovider-for-markup-extensions-for-wpf-par]. We have created a new one and we are working on that (that includes IProvideValueTarget and INameScope) but feel we have enough to ship this and mark this larger work item done and we do point out in reference to more work items need to happen, namely the work around IServiceProvider.

        Also XamlServices.Load / Save isn’t directly related to markup extenstion so we’re viewing that…

        It has taken over half a decade to get something that has been available in WPF and Silverlight since the beginning. Markup extensions are also in Noesis, which I have chosen as my rendering system over UWP as the Noesis team not only understands Xaml better than the UWP group, but also do a good job of being very active in their forums and customer base (I see Clint completely ignored Mike's questions and valid points below like a true professional).

        Plus, they are already cross platform and work in iOS and Droid. Yes, markup extensions today that work everywhere. Something UWP hasn't been able to accomplish for years.

          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!
          Andrew – Windows Notifications

              F# team just posted an update on their GitHub. https://github.com/Microsoft/visualfsharp/issues/1096

              This is still a work in progress. One key thing from that post is some of these features and fixes have already been underway for months. While we’ve been investigating F#-specific issues in .NET Native, the team has continued to improve .NET Native. One feature known as “universal shared generics” is likely to have improved .NET Native’s support for F#, even without that being an explicit goal of the feature.

                Currently, the platform provides a number of SMS Access from a system eventing perspective (as of Windows Phone 8.1), and Windows Phone supports sms backup/restore for consumers as part of the base OS (Settings → Backup). What we don’t provide is a backup API.

                Using SMS events: Check out the Build 2014 session (http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2014/2-518) or MSDN docs on background tasks (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsphone/develop/hh977056.aspx)

                Although the capabilities are there from a consumer perspective (the core ask for the suggestion), I’m marking this as ‘Under Review’ for the API perspective. The team is aware of the ask and it is something that is being considered.
