As planned, Microsoft released Visual Studio 2022 (version 17) and .NET 6.0 Monday of this week. The goals of the new version are to make it more efficient for developers to move from idea to coding, as well as to improve productivity in the editing and debugging cycle.
Among other things, the Intellicode function can now complete entire lines of code. If the developer makes a change in the code snippet, the tool can suggest similar changes in other parts of the code where similar patterns exist.
Open to larger projects
However, it is the scalability and performance of the development tool itself that Microsoft has so far highlighted as the biggest news. The main processor in Visual Studio in older versions was 32-bit, while it is now 64-bit. This means that much more memory can be used than before, allowing the tool to be used for larger and more complex projects than before.
