Yesterday (Jul 10th, 2016), I released WPFSpark v1.3 on GitHub & NuGet. In this version I have updated the Layout logic of FluidWrapPanel with a more robust code. Now it rearranges the variable sized children in a more efficient manner.
Also, I upgraded the target DotNet Framework of the WPFSpark project from 4.6.1 to 4.6.2.
If you are installing this version in your project, please ensure that your project is also targeting the version 4.6.2 of the DotNet Framework.
Retiring WPFSpark.UWP project
I will be retiring the WPFSpark.UWP project soon. Having controls used for UWP project and keeping the project name “WPFSpark” did not make sense (as WPF is limited to Windows 10 desktop projects). As of now WPFSpark.UWP project contains only the FluidWrapPanel control. I will be moving the control (and its source code) to the CompositionProToolkit project.
CompositionProToolkit is a collection of helper classes for Windows.UI.Composition. It also contains the FluidProgressRing control which is a concept design for a modern version of the ProgressRing control in UWP.
I have currently ported the FluidWrapPanel code in WPFSpark v1.3 to UWP and now I am trying to use Windows.UI.Composition APIs to replace the XAML animations used in FluidWrapPanel. This would result in smoother animations in FluidWrapPanel control. This work is currently in progress and I hope to release it soon.
