Now that the update's release is imminent, developers have started getting their hands on the new version's software development kit, and they're reporting on the improvements Microsoft has made.

The biggest news is that one important Windows Phone 8.1 change points to the possibility that the smartphone operating system may finally be merged with the tablet OS Windows RT.
