Microsoft has released a third beta of its upcoming Visual Studio 2019 IDE, dumping Windows Mobile support for Universal Windows Platform (UWP) but enhancing Azure cloud access. Developers who need to continue working on a UWP application for Windows 10 mobile devices should stick with Visual Studio 2017.

The official production launch of Visual Studio 2019 is set for April 2, 2019.
