Visual Studio 2017 is Here

Visual Studio 2017 is finally here and you can download now. Visual Studio 2017 enables you to be more productive for any application and on any platform.

If you download Visual Studio 2017 by March 14, you’ll get a 60-day access to Xamarin University which is a sweet deal.

What’s New

Visual Studio 2017 has a brand new installation experience which includes a minimal footprint for Visual Studio. Installation is quick (minutes not hours) and finally uninstalls cleanly. It’s also much easier to just install the features you want and need.

“Today is a pivotal moment for .NET. With the release of .NET 2015 Preview, we are embarking on a new journey while maintaining our strong commitment to the 1+ billion customers that are using .NET today.

As Scott Guthrie and S. ‘Soma’ Somesegar announced at the Connect(); event today, .NET is entering a new era as it embraces open source as a core principal and enables .NET applications to run on multiple operating systems. As part of .NET 2015 Preview, we are delivering .NET Core 5 which is a completely open source stack and can run on multiple operating systems. In addition, not only are we contributing .NET Core 5 to the .NET Foundation but we will openly collaborate with the community and ensure that we continue our strong relationship with existing .NET open source communities, in particular the Mono community. Here are a set of announcement around open source and cross platform from today’s Connect(); event:

.NET Core 5 is the small optimized runtime for ASP.NET 5. It currently runs on Windows, and will be extended to Linux and Mac. You will have more choice of which operating systems you use for ASP.NET 5 development and deployment, supported by Microsoft. Azure will support ASP.NET 5 in both Linux and Windows VMs. You choose.”

I’m glad to see some attention being applied to WPF/XAML. Looking forward to all of the new tooling improvements and whatever else they release. Keep it coming!
