- Redefined fundamentals. There is a renewed focus to enhance the efficiency of the fundamental tasks that developers encounter on daily basis. From a brand-new lightweight and modular installation tailored to a developer’s need, a faster IDE from startup to shut down, to a new way to view, edit, and debug any code without projects and solutions, Visual Studio 2017 helps developers stay focused on the big picture.
- Streamlined Azure development. Built-in suite of Azure tools that enable developers to easily create cloud-first applications powered by Microsoft Azure. Visual Studio makes it easy to configure, build, debug, package, and deploy applications and services on Microsoft Azure directly from the IDE.
- Five-star mobile development. With advanced debugging and profiling tools and unit test generation features, Visual Studio 2017 with Xamarin makes it faster and easier than ever for developers to build, connect, and tune mobile apps for Android, iOS, and Windows. Developers can also choose to develop mobile apps with Apache Cordova or with Visual C++ cross-platform library development, all in Visual Studio.
The Visual Studio Ecosystem
Many customers extend Visual Studio with solutions from the Visual Studio Marketplace. With today’s announcement, we have over 100 partners simultaneously shipping their extensions with the release, making over 700 extensions available to use with Visual Studio 2017.
One of the more popular extensions is Microsoft’s Productivity Power Tools. Over the last year, we’ve been reconfiguring the Power Tools to be a discrete set of extensions, and today we’re making many of them available in Visual Studio 2017.
Also, today we’re making available a preview of the Python Tools. We wanted to ensure that you have access to the Python tooling, as we are finishing up the full localization to enable us to publish them in a future minor update to all interested Visual Studio 2017 users.
