          Hello. This suggestion has gained a great deal of momentum so we would like to share our plans to address configuration driven XML transforms in Visual Studio. We understand that this is potentially blocking many teams and projects from moving forward to Visual Studio 2015. While we will not be implementing this functionality in Visual Studio 2015 itself, we do plan to update the SlowCheetah extension to fully support Visual Studio 2015. Our long term plan, however, is to integrate this functionality into a future version of Visual Studio.

          We will update the community when SlowCheetah has been updated with support for Visual Studio 2015.

          Will Buik,
          Visual Studio – VS IDE Project and Build Team

          Where did you see that show cheetah is deprecated?

          I agree. It would be awesome to use config transforms during debugging, etc instead of just during deployment.

            You should be able to filter the events you are interested in Diagnostics Search UI. Unfortunately can’t add screenshot, but these are the instructions – click on Diagnostic search part on Maine Overview blade, click Filter button (at the top of the Diagnostics search blade), Find “Event name” item in the list of properties on the right, click on Arrow icon next to “Event name” – you should be ale to see the list of events and chose the events you need.

            Please take a look at the Properties list – you may find other items you might be interested to filter on.

            Marking item as completed.

                @Sten2005 That's like asking them to continue supporting XP. It has to die sometime.

                    Hello everyone and thank you for the feedback. We are actively investigating ways to improve how Visual Studio handles project content. This suggestion falls into that category. Unfortunately, we will not be able to address this feedback for the Visual Studio 2015 release. We will update the community when our plans in this area have gained more clarity.

                    Will Buik,

                    @Nathan Black that's an amazing idea! We are building an angularjs app that has _nothing_ to do with asp.net. That being said, I love Visual Studio and want to continue using it as my daily development but I don't want to dictate to others which OS/IDE (if any) they should use. I'm considering treating the project as a web site instead of a web application which I think might solve the problem in a round-about way.

                    Michael PatersonMichael Paterson commented  ·   ·  Delete…

                    This would really be great for teams that develop on different platforms for the same project. I love Visual Studio on Windows and others on my team use Sublime Text on a Mac. This would definitely make it a much better experience.

                      Hey Scott,

                      Thanks for taking the time to make this suggestion. I think every programmer has one or more features in any language which they just hate because they’ve been abused by someone else. I’ve renamed this post to capture that immortalized hatred all programmers share for such evil constructs!

                      Having said that, #regions do have valid use 4% of the time to someone (arguably grouping interface implementations within a class?) and even if there weren’t it’s really far too late to remove them (even if we thought they were evil, which we don’t). It simply wouldn’t be responsible to the millions of developers out there who might have #region directives in their code today either intentionally or having inherited them from other developers (at least some of which have passionately argued on this thread below) to break that code now without a pretty darn good reason. As a rule,…

                      Michael PatersonMichael Paterson commented  ·   ·  Delete…

                      @MichaelJohn I think regions encourage organization.

                      Michael PatersonMichael Paterson commented  ·   ·  Delete…

                      I definitely disagree with this one. I love to organize my classes with regions (Fields, Properties, Ctors, Methods). Maybe just add a setting to "hide" regions or something.

                            This should now be possible by using Edit and Continue since we’ve added it for x64 as wel-http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2013/06/26/debugging-support-for-64-bit-edit-and-continue-in-visual-studio-2013.aspx

                            If you are still seeing Edit and Continue fail – if it’s a known not supported case, please log another UserVoice item or vote on an existing one. Otherwise, please log a bug on http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio and we will investigate!

                                  Thanks for the feedback about adding Mercurial as a source control option for TFS.

                                  At this time, we are not planning to add support for any additional version control systems to TFS. The addition of Git to TFS provides teams with the option of the preeminent distributed version control system or the existing centralized version control system, TFVC. For developers that are specifically looking for Mercurial support, one option is to use the Hg-Git plugin that aims to losslessly convert Git commits coming from a Git server to Mercurial changesets.

                                  @Pedro why do you prefer Mercurial? I have never used it.....
