  • Updated how input bindings are assigned to several DockingCommands.
  • Updated code to improve programmatic docking in scenarios where the dock site had not yet been displayed.
  • Updated interop control compatibility for dock guides to no longer automatically kick in in Windows apps unless UsesHostedAutoHidePopups is false.
  • Fixed a bug where docking windows created in a XAML template may not show their title or content correctly.
  • Fixed a bug where DockSite.WindowActivated may not fire when the focus was set to a child control that doesn't inherit Visual.
  • Fixed a bug where docking a ToolWindowContainer in inner-fill mode could sometimes case its tool windows to disappear until the next arrange cycle.
  • Fixed a bug where auto-hide flyouts could be clipped in a scenario with UseHostedAutoHidePopups is false and the window is partially offscreen.


  • Added the NavigationBarLayoutSerializer.CustomTypes property, which allows for custom data types to be serialized in the layout.
  • Updated NavigationPane's template to use its Padding value for adding space around large button image/text.
