Wow. What an amazing time to be a .NET developer. The remarkable announcements during the first keynote of Connect(); 2016 mean that Microsoft really is staying behind its "Any Developer, Any App, Any Platform" strategy.

Visual Studio 2017 RC announced!

Sure enough, as a preferred Microsoft Partner we've seen various previews of Visual Studio "15," but we didn't expect even half of these staggering announcements:

  • Visual Studio 2017 RC
  • Best possible mobile developer experiences in VS2017 RC (HockeyApp integration from Xamarin projects, MacOS support, Xamarin templates gain more backend services support—now ASP.NET Core powered)
  • Productivity (production debugging, general debugging improvements, better code analytics)
  • Streamlined Azure experience
  • Integrated Docker support
  • Visual Studio for Mac Preview
  • Visual Studio Mobile Center Preview
  • Installation, performance and UX

We are excited to see Microsoft's commitment to improve the best IDE on the market. We've been building several of the best (and widely popular) Visual Studio extensions since 2010, so the Connect(); announcement only meant that we had to support the newest Visual Studio version right from the start.

For those of you who plan on playing with the RC version of Visual Studio 2017, our most popular toolsets are compatible with Visual Studio 2017 RC:

What About the Rest of the Telerik Products?

Due to the many changes related to Xamarin development, we are still testing UI for Xamarin with Visual Studio 2017.

The new Visual Studio installation modularity (and smaller download size) also breaks the traditional MSI installation of our toolsets. We are working on providing new installers, which will resolve these issues.

We have been cooperating very closely with Microsoft to make sure all of our products support the RC. I hope you are one of the first people to try Visual Studio 2017 RC with our tools.

Happy Coding!
