Right on the heels of the Visual Studio 2013/TFS 2013 Update 3 CTP 1 announcement, Microsoft releases the first CTP for Visual Studio “14” (final name TBD). Although the final version of Visual Studio “14” isn’t likely to be released until next year, you can install the CTP now to get an early look at some of the changes going into the next version of Visual Studio.
NOTE: It is recommended that you install the CTP on a machine that has no other version of Visual Studio installed.
Although there a many features available in this CTP, some of the highlights include:
- C#/VB now on the .NET Compiler Platform (“Rosalyn”)
- ASP.NET vNext (Scott Hanselman provides a great introduction here)
If you run across any bugs in the CTP and/or have any suggestions, please submit them on Microsoft’s Visual Studio Connect site.
