Microsoft announced several key new features and improvements to the latest version of its flagship developer toolset, Visual Studio 2013, which shipped in preview June 26. Announcing availability of the first build preview of the upgraded integrated development environment (IDE) here at its Build 2013 conference, S. Somasegar, corporate vice president of Microsoft's Developer Division, told eWEEK the new Visual Studio release may be the most comprehensive ever, partly because the opportunities for software developers are greater than ever before. And Microsoft has to cater to the needs of these individuals and teams. As Microsoft Technical Fellow Brian Harry told eWEEK prior to the Microsoft TechEd 2013 conference earlier this month, the company would be announcing a new version of Visual Studio and focusing on the application lifecycle management (ALM) and DevOps features at TechEd. At Build, the company is focusing on the core software development capabilities of the products making Visual Studio 2013 Preview and .NET 4.5.1 Preview now available for download and as "go-live" releases.
