Back during Build 2016 Microsoft launched the preview version of Visual Studio 15. The preview had tons of experimental features for people to try out, but – as with any preview – ended up having quite a few bugs. Today, Microsoft is releasing Visual Studio 15 Preview 2, which is going to add a few more features and fix a lot of the issues that users were reporting from the previous version of the preview.
Here’s a list of some of the new features:
- Account settings dialogue now more accessible to screen readers
- Diagnostics improvements to help track down focus related issues,
- Edit and Continue for XAML apps
- Simplified debug configuration in Folder view
- New launcher
In their post announcing the release, Microsoft reminded us that this is just a preview, and shouldn’t be put into effect in any serious production environments. If you want to know a little bit more about Visual Studio 15 Preview 2, you can check out the full release notes right here.
