NOTE: As of 29 Mar 2019, SharpDX is no longer being under development or maintenance
SharpDX has been around for almost 9 years, the project is relatively stable and has been used by many products.
But due to the lack of strong technical leadership and community involvment on the project, SharpDX can no longer maintain the quality required for its maintenance In consequence, SharpDX is being retired. You can still download all NuGet binaries, you can fork and modify the project as long as you respect the original License.
This repository is now readonly
