We are happy to announce that nRF Connect for desktop v2.0 has now been released, and is available for download on the nRF Connect product page.

We will continue improving the user experience and adding new features to both the nRF Connect framework and the apps. We have plans for adding more apps in near future, so stay tuned!
File downloads and getting started guide can be found in the downloads tab on the nRF Connect product page.
