Microsoft Ship Visual Studio 2012 Update 2

Yesterday Microsoft announced the shipping of the second update to Visual Studio 2012. To quote S. Somasegar the corporate VP of Microsoft’s developer division:

“This release contains important fixes as well as a wealth of new functionality, addressing feedback we’ve received from the community and aligning with key software development trends in the market.  The new functionality primarily spans (though is not limited to) five areas of investment: agile planning, quality enablement, Windows Store development, line-of-business development, and the general developer experience.”

This release builds on the already de-facto tool for .Net development and development management. Of note are the better agile planning aspects, increased quality enablement and the addition of a number of Windows Store and Line-of-business development support items. These updates complement the previously released ASP.NET and Web Tools 2012.2 Update.

I look forward to examining the impact of these over the coming months and how they relate to Solidsoft projects.
