This is a follow up to the first part of my blog post which compares the Windows 10 SDK to Windows 8.1

This section part will concentrate on the “um” folder differences.

Ok, let’s dive into the changes:

· “um\alljoyn” and “um\qcc” folders: Seems to be a set of header files related to Windows support for IoT. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AllJoyn for further details

· A lot of the header files have been updated to keep up to date with the latest SAL annotation improvements and to suppress compiler warnings. Also some of the headers have references to the new Partitions concept

· activedbg.h/idl: New BREAKREASON_MUTATION_BREAKPOINT enum value which refers to a new Mutation Breakpoint? and DEBUG_TEXT_ISNONUSERCODE define which indicates script is not a user code, such as library/tools code.
