Visual Assist build 2118 is available

Visual Assist build 2118 introduces support for Visual Studio 2017 RC. Technically, support for the latest IDE arrived in build 2116, but we refrained from advertising build 2116 fearing early adopters would find a few problems. Alas, that assumption turned out true.

Build 2118, and build 2116 for that matter, introduce no new features in Visual Assist. If you have Visual Studio 2017 RC, install build 2118. If you are using any other IDE, you need build 2118 only if you encounter any of the few esoteric bugs the two recent builds address.

If you follow news about Visual Studio 2017 RC, you will discover that a few improvements to its C++ IDE are strikingly similar to features in Visual Assist, albeit essentially decade-old ones: filtering of member lists, improved Find All References, Go To All, and Dot-to-Arrow. In the near future, we will tweak the documentation and UI for Visual Assist to ensure differences are clear and that you have easy access to both implementations.

Expect new features in Visual Assist after the first of the year.

Visual Assist build 2118 requires software maintenance through 2016.12.12.
