Touch and accelerometer APIs added for Microsoft's new handheld

Microsoft has released a set of Zune Extensions for XNA Game Studio 3.1 to expose new functionality and support for the company's new Zune HD media player.

The extensions add the Zune HD as a new development target, in addition to new touch and accelerometer APIs, to the framework.

The Platformer Game Starter Kit has also been updated to take advantage of the new Touch API, and Microsoft believes that porting from previous Zune models should be 'relatively easy'.
