Great for learning Linq and a great spotlight on OzCode. It remains to be seen whether the extension is not too heavy for a daily use.
VS2017 provides a minimal support for .editorconfig. This extension provides everything else: options in Tools>Options and modern editing (syntax coloring, intellisense and code reformatting).
VS 2017 support is provided by Roslyn wich add new Code Style Options.
A plugin can add .editorconfiug to older VS: editorconfig/editorconfig-visualstudio.
With the rise of Roslyn, some free tools can be interesting replacement for paid one. Refactoring Essentials for Visual Studio can be used when Resharper is not available.
After seen this VS extension, we can just ask why this is not default behavior: Mike-Ward.Net – VSColorOutput
As said in title, await will be available in catch and finally block in VS14. This removes a “difficult-to-understand” limitation of VS up to 2013.
We can hope more welcome evolution thanks to Roselyn adoption. Perhaps also evolutions in yield (yield return in a try/catch bloc or yield return of any Enumerable<T>). I hope so.
At least a dependency graph among project in a solution: Solution Dependency Viewer extension.
At least! But only a preview for now.
Permits to nest/unest files in project. It’s convenient to gather partials class without always creating folders.
A public symbol server usable to permits nuget (and others) source debugging.
You load your pdbs (eventually corresponding sources), your users just have to configure Visual Studio for symbol/server adding http://srv.symbolsource.org/pdb/Public. That’s it.
