Who should use this PREVIEW release?

  • This preview is for developers looking to build conversation applications using the latest Bot Framework SDK preview features like Adaptive Dialogs, Language Understanding and Language Generation.
  • Composer and the Bot Framework Adaptive Dialog are in-preview and should not be used for production deployments.
  • We designed Composer to be a web app to allow developers to extend Composer as well as embed it within their own solutions. The
    current version of Composer is a web app that runs locally. Future releases will enable Composer to run as a centralized hosted web application.
