It's still early in the year and Visual Studio 2017 is ramping up for its RTM release (via Neowin.) The latest previews have been eating towards the availability to manufacturers, and today Microsoft has announced officially that it's almost ready to ship.
MSDN has released a final blog post to explain more about the changes between VS 2015 Update 3 and VS 2017 RTM. Beyond the binary compatibility and compilers explained in previous posts, this one went further into detail about the vector overhaul that will improve runtime's performance.
Along with a slew of major buf fixes and tweaks, the most recent Visual Studio has warning overhauls and compiler throughput. Developers will be eager to get their hands on the RTM version coming soon. Until then, they'll have to settle for the Release Candidate (RC) version as there currently isn't an estimated date for launch.
