Microsoft Releases Visual Studio 2013 Update 1


On January 20th, Microsoft released Update 1 for Visual Studio 2013. It is mainly minor updates and bug fixes with no update to TFS (Full details here). According to Somasegar (Corporate Vice President of the Developer Division at Microsoft):

This is a targeted update, addressing some key areas of customer feedback since the Visual Studio 2013 release. For example, we heard your feedback about running Visual Studio in environments without IE10+, and have made several improvements to this experience in Update 1.

So what about TFS and Update 2? According to Brian Harry, Microsoft Technical Fellow working as the Product Unit Manager for Team Foundation Server:

Update 2 is very close behind Update 1 and there will be a new version of TFS released for Update 2.

He went on to say:

We’re just wrapping up feature work on Update 2 this week and will soon be releasing our first CTP. We’re just beginning the process of polishing, bug fixing, etc. to release a solid Update.

So what is coming out with Update 2? Brian gave a sneak peek at that as well saying:

Our two biggest areas of investment in this release (2013.2) have been Agile Project Management (and general work tracking) and the next increment of Git tooling.

There you go developers! All the latest regarding Visual Studio 2013 Update 1 and 2
