The release candidate can be downloaded here

Let’s dense this down. Here it is (or at least some of it). I’ll have to write a specific post on language specific changes 😀 – so many 😀

VS 33% faster 55% smaller

Go to all search (like the Resharper one) with filters

Run to click (and avoid many breaklines)

Poorly performing extensions will yield warnings in the notification section

Reload all projects is now reload solution

VSHub is replaced with new external service host

Go to Line has been revamped as well as Find All References

You can Open Folder (folder based solutions yay!)

Add service reference is now ‘service capability’

Attach to process has filter capabilities

Re-attach to previous added

Exception Helper – quick overview

Exception conditions lets you choose to break only on exceptions from specific modules

Diagnostics Tool window shows a summary when debugging (nr. of exceptions etc.)

Performance profiler can be attached to specific process

CPU usage provides more details

New refactoring suggestions that can be customized

 

Desktop Dev specific:

XAML import namespace in intellisense

Ctrl + r + r on selected text lets you rename all places

Preview in collapsed code block areas in XAML

XAML edit and continue

Remove and sort Namespaces keyboard shortcut

XAML switch between tabs 90% faster

Editor also considerably faster

Manifest designer for creating visual assets

In app tool menu (similar to inspect in Chrome)

  1. Are there any new steps to register a checkin policy with VS 2017? I tried the below but it seems it doesn’t register correctly.

    reg add “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0\TeamFoundation\SourceControl\Checkin Policies” /f /v MyCheckinPolicy /t REG_SZ /d C:\ProgramData\MyCompany\VisualStudio\2017\MyCheckinPolicy.dll
    reg add “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0_Config\TeamFoundation\SourceControl\Checkin Policies” /f /v MyCheckinPolicy /t REG_SZ /d C:\ProgramData\MyCompany\VisualStudio\2017\MyCheckinPolicy.dll
    reg add “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0\TeamFoundation\SourceControl\Checkin Policies” /f /v MyCheckinPolicy /t REG_SZ /d C:\ProgramData\MyCompany\VisualStudio\2017\MyCheckinPolicy.dll
