Visual Assist build 2093 is our second build of 2016—the year—and includes official support for Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 RC. If you read the previous post in this blog, you know builds of Visual Assist that work in one flavor of an IDE, e.g. Visual Studio 2013 RC, “work” in all flavors, but a new flavor isn’t officially supported, nor do all features of Visual Assist necessary function, until we announce official support. That support is now available for Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 RC.
Our options dialog got another upgrade in this build. We added a clearly visible help box that refreshes as one navigates the dialog via keyboard or mouse. If you want to know more than the nugget presented, a link within the help box takes you directly to respective documentation.
Visual Assist build 2093 also includes better support for C++11 and C++14, with parsing and coloring of Unicode and raw string literals, constexpr, thread_local, and more.
Visual Assist build 2093 requires software maintenance through 2016.03.11.
