"The Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit adds documentation, sample code, header and library files, emulator images and tools to Visual Studio that let you build applications for Windows Mobile 6.5. A new set of APIs is being introduced that will enable application developers to take advantage of the new Windows Mobile 6.5 touch gesture framework. The gesture APIs allow an application to handle touch gesture input and provide a visually consistent experience with the rest of the device UI. Note that the gesture APIs are only available on the Windows Mobile Classic and Professional SKUs."
Microsoft has just released the Windows Mobile 6.5 DTK to developers. It includes seven new emulator images, and is available in English, Chinese Simplified, French, German, Italian, and Spanish, and separately for Standard and Professional devices.
Update: This is the DTK, not the SDK. You'll still need to install the Windows Mobile 6 SDK in order to develop for Windows Mobile 6.5.
