1C:Enterprise Development Tools 1.3.0 beta is available
1C Company releases 1C:Enterprise Development Tools version 1.3.0 (beta). The main purpose of this release is to support 1C:Enterprise platform version 8.3.9, while significant functionality changes are scheduled for the next updates.
1C:Enterprise Development Tools is an integrated new-generation environment for the development of 1C:Enterprise business applications. You can use 1C:Enterprise Development Tools alongside with 1C:Enterprise Designer. Applications developed with 1C:Enterprise Development Tools are fully compatible with the latest 1C:Enterprise versions. 1C:Enterprise Development Tools advantages are compliance with the latest demands and requirements, and rapid evolution and enhancement capabilities for the development environment.
The creation of a new development environment is a large-scale task. Version 1.3.0 is an improvement of version 1.2.1.
Version 1.3.0 supports configuration development for 1C:Enterprise platform versions 8.3.8 and 8.3.9. Configurations being developed for both versions can share a single workspace.

Beta version purpose and specifics
1C:Enterprise Development Tools are based on a totally new architecture. This provides a great potential for the implementation of a wide range of development automation tools and usability improvements. However, the beta version only uses a small part of these new architecture capabilities. It is intended primarily for mobile application development and does not support all 1C:Enterprise capabilities. In particular, it does not support some metadata object types. For the full list of limitations, see the documentation supplied with the beta version distribution kit.
The beta version is not optimized for the development of large configurations. The optimization is scheduled for the next releases.
1C:Enterprise Development Tools version 1.3.0 supports 1C:Enterprise platform versions 8.3.8 and 8.3.9.
The new project migration feature ensures that you can use version 1.3.0 to work with configurations developed with earlier 1C:Enterprise Development Tools versions.
The release of the full 1C:Enterprise Development Tools version is scheduled for the first quarter of 2017, with a few more beta version updates in between. The future beta versions will include the following features:
- Support of external reports and external data processors
- Support of configuration profiling
- Optimization for development of large configurations
