Visual Assist build 2094 is available

Visual Assist build 2094 fixes only one bug of significance—sort of. The bug is actually in Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 and the “fix” in Visual Assist is to work around the bug. If you install Visual Studio 2015 Update 2, you need Visual Assist build 2094. If you use any other IDE, build 2094 offers very little.

The workaround in Visual Assist is a simple one. VA Snippets that prompt for input are typically expanded in-editor. Complex VA Snippets prompt for input via a dialog. The “fix” is to open the dialog for all VA Snippets that need input. Effectively, in-editor expansion is on hold in Visual Studio 2015.

Visual Assist build 2094 requires software maintenance through 2016.03.25.

Check out the small list of bug fixes in build 2094, or download the installer—especially if you use Visual Studio 2015.
