MS Open Tech has published a new open source version of Project Generator that makes it possible for openFrameworks (OF) developers to natively build universal apps for Windows phones, tablets and PCs. The updated Project Generator is available via GitHub on the MSOpenTech Universal branch . We will be working with the OF community to contribute the associated changes to the main repository.

You may have heard about the new functionality within Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 that allows developers to build universal apps for Windows http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/dn609832.aspx. Through it, multiple Windows platforms can be targeted at the same time during app development by largely sharing a common code base. This capability is remarkable for a host of reasons, not the least of which is the time (=cost) savings achieved by pushing Windows Store apps and Windows Phone 8.1 apps out to a broad set of users across multiple device form factors.
