Microsoft has released the latest version of its Windows Embedded Compact operating system.

Windows Embedded Compact 2013 is the successor of Windows Embedded Compact 7 (AKA Windows CE). It is targeted at small-footprint devices used by retail, manufacturing, healthcare and other vertical industries.

The 2013 release supports both x86 and ARM architectures and adds support for Visual Studio 2012. The latest Compact Embedded operating system also includes:

  • Improvements to the core operating system, including memory management and networking capabilities
  • Improved file-system performance, enabling devices to always be available
  • Optimized startup, with snapshot boot, which allows devices to boot within seconds to a known state, such as a specific UI with device drivers loaded
  • Built-in support for Wi-Fi, cellular and Bluetooth technologies, and a seamless connection to Windows Azure, for a robust, connected intelligent system
  • Support from thousands of developers and partners, who have built add-on solutions, including HTML5 browsers

Windows Embedded Compact 2013 is one of several different embedded operating system offerings Microsoft sells, each of which is aimed at a specific set of devices and developers.
