Visual Studio 2013 is now available!


Hello Developers!

I’m excited to announce that Visual Studio 2013 is now available to you to download.
For developers and development teams, Visual Studio 2013 easily delivers applications across all Microsoft devices, cloud, desktop, server and game console platforms by providing a consistent development experience, hybrid collaboration options, and state-of-the-art tools, services, and resources.

Below are just a few of the highlights in this release:

  • Innovative features for greater developer productivity:   Visual Studio 2013 includes many user interface improvements; there are more   than 400 modified icons with greater differentiation and increased use of   color, a redesigned Start page, and other design changes.
  • Support for Windows 8.1 app development: Visual Studio   2013 provides the ideal toolset for building modern applications that   leverage the next wave in Windows platform innovation (Windows 8.1), while   supporting devices and services across all Microsoft platforms. Support for   Windows Store app development in Windows 8.1 includes updates to the tools,   controls and templates, new Coded UI test support for XAML apps, UI   Responsiveness Analyzer and Energy Consumption profiler for XAML & HTML   apps, enhanced memory profiling tools for HTML apps, and improved integration   with the Windows Store.
  • Web development advances: Creating websites or services on   the Microsoft platform provides you with many options, including ASP.NET   WebForms, ASP.NET MVC, WCF or Web API services, and more. Previously, working   with each of these approaches meant working with separate project types and   tooling isolated to that project’s capabilities. The One ASP.NET vision   unifies your web project experience in Visual Studio 2013 so that you can   create ASP.NET web applications using your preference of ASP.NET component   frameworks in a single project. Now you can mix and match the right tools for   the job within your web projects, giving you increased flexibility and   productivity.

Lastly, please save the date for the Visual Studio 2013 Launch on November 13th as you’re cordially invited to join us online from virtually anywhere using your PC or mobile device.
