Visual Studio 2017

Visual Studio 2017 version 15.6 & version 15.7 Preview 2 releases

Software

Visual Studio 2017 version 15.6 has been released.

What’s news?

Performance

In 15.6, we continued improving solution load performance, specifically for scenarios when design time build results are cached. Large C# and Visual Basic solutions will load twice as fast as before when a solution has already been opened on a machine.

.NET Core Solution Load

We focused on .NET Core and according to our lab measurements, customers can expect 20% faster solution load times on average.

UI Responsiveness Notifications

In order to provide more transparency around extensions’ impact on performance and reliability, Visual Studio performs real-time analysis to determine whether an extension is likely to have caused unresponsiveness. If an extension is determined to have caused the hang, Visual Studio will display a notification which allows the user to disable the suspect extension or suppress future notifications for that extension

These are the customer-reported issues addressed in this release:
