Visual Studio 2019 v16.7 Preview 2 Available Today!

C++ Updates

Visual Studio v16.7 Preview 2 delivers various improvements in the C++ space. Within the Connection Manager, you’re now able to edit remote SSH connections, e.g. if the IP address of your target system changes and needs to be updated. You’re also able to set default remote connections to be consumed via **${defaultRemoteMachineName} **in CMakeSettings.json and launch.vs.json.

When you edit a remote connection, Visual Studio will no longer need to recopy headers to Windows for a native IntelliSense experience. Likewise, setting default remote connections is useful for checking CMakeSettings.json and launch.vs.json into source control with no user or machine-specific information. These remote connections over SSH allow you to build and debug your C++ projects on a remote Linux system directly from Visual Studio.

CPP Add or Remove SSH Connections

This release also brings enhanced IntelliSense support for Clang on Windows (clang-cl) in Visual Studio. The clang include path now includes the clang libraries, we’ve improved the display of in-editor squiggles (particularly when using the std library), and we’ve added support for C++2a is supported in clang mode.

The Preview release also contains four new code analysis rules to incorporate additional safety features into C++: C26817C26818C26819, and C26820. Please see the C++ Team Blog for more info.

In addition, new C++20 Standard Library features have been implemented. A detailed list is provided in the STL Changelog on GitHub.

.NET Productivity

Quick Info now displays the diagnostic ID along with a help link where you can easily navigate to our documentation to learn more about warnings and errors in your code.

Git Productivity

We continue to release more Git functionality in Visual Studio 2019. This time we focus on merge conflict resolution. We’ve revamped the Visual Studio merge editor by decoupling it from TFVC and focusing it on Git.

A new gold info bar at the top of a file will tell you when there are merge conflicts that need to be manually resolved. Clicking will take you to the merge editor, which now has more informative tiles and captions to help you distinguish between the conflicting branches. We’ve reduced the clutter around the zoom margin, health margin, and the toolbar. In addition, it is easier to parse conflicts with aligned matching lines, word level differences, and visible whitespace when it is the only difference. You can turn off non-conflicting differences to just focus on the conflicts. You can also resolve add/add conflicts at the file level now with a two-way merge. Finally, we have added a checkbox to resolve all conflicts on one side or the other with a single click.

Try the new features by toggling the Preview Feature for New Git user experience in Tools > Options.

In other Git improvements, we will now close any open folders or solutions before starting a new clone operation, so that Visual Studio can open the newly cloned repo to help you get to your code faster. We’ve improved upon the commit text box, adding inline error checking. And we’ve added UI to help you more clearly understand what is happening when you initialize and push a repository to a remote host like GitHub or Azure Repos.

Local Process with Kubernetes

Local Process with Kubernetes allows you to write, test and debug your .NET code on your development workstation while connected to your Kubernetes cluster with the rest of your application or services. By connecting your development workstation to your cluster, you eliminate the need to manually run and configure dependent services on your development machine. Environment variables, connection strings and volumes from the cluster are available to your microservice code running locally.

For more information on Local Process with Kubernetes, we have detailed it out in our team blog.

[Guest post] Learn C# with Visual Studio, Visual Studio for Mac, and Unity

UPDATE: The book giveaway challenge is complete. We will be announcing winners on the Visual Studio blog within the next week. Thank you for your submissions!

Visual Studio is an amazing development tool. But Visual Studio and Visual Studio for Mac are more than just intuitive, state-of-the-art development environments. They’re also remarkably powerful learning and exploration tools, with features to help you create and understand your code. I love teaching and learning about C## with Visual Studio. That’s why my co-author, Jenny Greene, and I put Visual Studio and Visual Studio for Mac right at the center of our latest book, _Head First C# _(4th edition), published by O’Reilly Media. _Head First C# _incorporates Visual Studio directly in the learning. combining Visual Studio with the unique and innovative “brain-friendly” Head First approach to teaching helps us make learning C## easier and more fun for our readers.

Visual Studio 2019 v16.7 and v16.8 Preview 1 Release Today!

Today we are excited to announce the release of Visual Studio 2019 version 16.7 and Visual Studio 2019 version 16.8 Preview 1. Each of these releases have features we have been working hard to deliver.  Install version 16.7 to start using our highlight improvements. Included in this list are Git integration including a new merge editor and easy conflict resolution, WPF design-time data, C++ support for 64-bit projects and debug builds, and additional IntelliSense functionality. In addition, Visual Studio 2019 v16.7 is our next long-term servicing release. In conjunction, we are releasing Visual Studio 2019 v16.8 Preview 1 which you can install from our download site. Our Preview version brings you pre-release functionality of the Git Repository window for easier navigation and more uses for the Quick Actions and Refactoring menu. We’ve provided additional highlights of what’s new below, yet additional information can be found in our release notes.

As always, we love to hear your feedback. Developer Community is the best venue to share your experiences so we can continue to learn how these features impact your work, both positively and negatively. Through this portal, we can have more in-depth conversation around future features.

New in Visual Studio 2019 v16.7

Git Integration

For this release, if you haven’t tried the new Git user experience yet, you can turn it on from the Preview Features pane of Tools > Options.

We’ve revamped the Visual Studio merge editor by decoupling it from Team Foundation Version Control and focusing it on Git. A new gold info bar at the top of a file will tell you when there are merge conflicts needing manual resolution.

Clicking will take you to the merge editor. Based on your feedback, we’ve modified the titles and captions, clearly indicating incoming and current branch names. This helps distinguish between conflicting branches. In addition, we’ve reduced the clutter around the zoom margin, health margin, and the toolbar. Now, it is easier to parse conflicts with aligned matching lines, word level differences, and visible whitespace when that is the only difference. You can turn off non-conflicting differences to just focus on the conflicts. You can also resolve add/add conflicts at the file level now with a two-way merge.

Git Conflict Resolution

We have also added a checkbox to resolve all conflicts on one side or the other with a single click.

Git Repository Window

To give you a complete full-screen experience to focus on dedicated Git activities, we built the new Git Repository window. From here you can view and manage all the local, remote, and upstream branches in your repository. You can also switch between branches and view the history graph of each branch. Double clicking on a commit will give you more details about it.

XAML Tools WPF/UWP

Coming from our WPF and UWP tooling team are a few important improvements.

Design-time Data

First of all, comes design-time data. Before this feature improvement, when adding new controls that are empty or working with controls that get populated with data via data binding at run time, it was hard to see how the end result would look during the design-time experience. That would get especially inconvenient if data binding or the data source didn’t yet exist. We wanted to give you a way to see your controls filled with data during the design-time development. That’s why we are introducing a new feature called design-time data. Now, for each XAML property for built-in controls, you can easily set a value visible only in the designer and not compiled into your binaries. To use this functionality, simply put a d: in front of the property you want to mock, and the designer will do the rest.
