After recent acquisition of GitHub by Microsoft, Microsoft today has announced for Visual Studio 2019 unveiling its plan for the evolution of the in-house developer tools in Visual Studio 2019.
Director of program management for Visual Studio, Mr. John Mont on company’s Visual Studio blog has announced the next major version of its developer software, which will be called Visual Studio 19 and the features that one can expect from this release:
Now, it’s time to start to look at what comes next.
The short answer is Visual Studio 2019.
Because the Developer Tools teams (especially. and Roslyn) do so much work in GitHub, you’ll start to see check-ins that indicate that we’re laying the foundation for Visual Studio 2019, and we’re now in the early planning phase of Visual Studio 2019 and Visual Studio for Mac. We remain committed to making Visual Studio faster, more reliable, more productive for individuals and teams, easier to use, and easier to get started with. Expect more and better refactorings, better navigation, more capabilities in the debugger, faster solution load, and faster build. But also expect us to continue to explore how connected capabilities like Live Share can enable developers to collaborate in real time from across the world and how we can make cloud scenarios like working with online source repositories more seamless. Expect us to push the boundaries of individual and team productivity with capabilities like IntelliCode, where Visual Studio can use Azure to train and deliver AI-powered assistance into the IDE.
Our goal with this next release is to make it a simple, easy upgrade for everyone – for example. Visual Studio 2019 previews will install side by side with Visual Studio 2017 and won’t require a major operating system upgrade.
The new Visual Studio previews are scheduled for future and could be expected to release soon. Users who have subscribed to Visual Studio 2017 preview would be first among others to receive the Visual Studio 2019 preview when it becomes available.
