In today’s edition of The Official Microsoft Blog’s Daily update, we have two big stories for you:

· The latest Kinect for Windows runtime and software development kit (SDK) was released today and the Kinect for Windows sensor is now available in China. The updated SDK gives developers more powerful sensor data tools and better ease of use, while offering businesses the ability to deploy in more places. Also, over the next few months we will be making Kinect for Windows sensors available in seven more markets: Chile, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Poland, and Puerto Rico.

· Web innovations are emerging at a relentless pace, and Web developers face the daily challenge of finding the accurate information needed to build great websites that work across the gamut of browsers and devices. Too often, their quest can feel like a wild goose chase. Enter Web Platform Docs, a new centralized community resource for Web developers who use HTML5, CSS and other open Web standards to build websites. Web Platform Docs is the culmination of collaboration among the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), Microsoft and other technology companies, including browser-makers Mozilla, Google and Opera, as well as Nokia, HP, Adobe and Facebook. Read more about it and watch a short video over on the Microsoft News Center.
