But what is Microsoft up to, if anything, as regards tools for building these Apps? Microsoft has supported the development of a standards based tool called Typescript. The present version of this tool is 1.0. In a blog post titled TypeScript and the Road to 2.0, Jonathan Turner, a developer at Microsoft provides readers with a glimpse of the roadmap to release 2.0 for this MSDN project.
