Show errors in Solution Explorer like Eclipse does
When changing code Eclipse shows where errors or warnings occur in the project explorer with an Icon. Please implement this in the Solution Explorer of visual studio as well.
In the 2013 Productivity Power Tools, we added support for showing errors, warnings, and messages inline in Solution Explorer. Please download the extension from the VS Gallery and try it out!

Eclipse also shows it in file on the left and rigth side of viewer.
Additionally, allow persistence of the build log when traversing from project to project, to show project specific output (when part of a larger dependency or build-all step)
