Visual Studio 14

There are few limitations and some issues which are known to developers. It’s only for testing and feedback purposes only and is available only in English right now. One more thing which is necessary to follow is not to install any previous version of Visual Studio side by side with this CTP release.

How to share your feedback:

  • Using Microsoft Connect one can report a bug.
  • You can also use UserVoice for any ideas or suggestions.
  • Or simply use Send-a-Smile/Frown Dialog Box which is present near the right side of the title bar in Visual Studio (choose the speech-bubble icon to open it).
