      Why is this needed? It feels a bit like syntactic sugar for the null object antipattern.

        I'd -1 this if I could, if you want to change the standard C++ libraries give some feedback to the C++ standards comittee.

          I'd upvote this brilliant suggestion if I didn't already spend my votes on other issues addressing huge deficiencies in Visual C++.

          Sad, but true.

            Last time I checked, Xcode and MonoDevelop and a few other IDEs had native support for Subversion, Git, Mercurial and whatever else.

            I guess I'm spoiled using Subversion at work, because AnkhSVN is pretty solid. But I do some work with projects on GitHub (thus git) and I choose to leave the IDE and do things on the command line (which is a pretty big context switch) because Git plugins for VS aren't up to par with Ankh.

            I feel most features in Visual Studio are fairly well thought out, developed and tested and I'd love to see native Git or Mercurial support in VS.

              UPDATE:
              We have just released an extension which delivers the Visual Studio Installer projects functionality present in Visual Studio 2010 for Visual Studio 2013.

              To find out more please read Visual Studio Installer Projects Extension

              Tony Goodhew, Program Manager, VS Pro

              UPDATE:
              We have more information on the next version of InstallShield Limited Edition that will be included in Visual Studio 2013.

              What’s new in Visual Studio 2013 and InstallShield Limited Edition

              ORIGINAL:
              We’d like to thank you all for your comments on this UserVoice entry. We have been discussing the comments on InstallShield Limited Edition (ISLE) raised here with Flexera and we are currently working with them to address the top issues. At this stage we have no plans to include the former Visual Studio Setup Projects in future product versions but we will continue to work with Flexera and the community to ensure…

              I had a simple project to deploy and WiX worked just fine for it. The Setup and Deployment project type will not be missed.

                I didn't realise how much I missed decent refactoring support until I spent a significant amount of time in C# with R# before going back to C++.

                VAX is pretty good but it falls over for me every so often. If Microsoft could put some solid C++ refactoring tools into VS that would be a huge productivity boost for me.

                    The linker itself is not a CPU bound problem it has traditionally been an I/O bound problem. So just adding cores is not going to help. Having said that we understand that what you are looking for is a faster linker.

                    We are currently parallelizing two major phases of the link process. Merging of debug information is perhaps the single most time consuming tasks when it comes to non-whole program optimized builds and we will merge this with the symbol resolution phase of the linker. This should result in better parallelism and improved linker throughput overall.

                    Hope that helps.

                      +3, although this is probably wishful thinking.

                            Thanks for the idea, and we’ve taken steps with RC to address the feedbck we’ve received to date. As it stands, I’m going to close this idea out – technically as declined, but we have made adjustments to the UI. While we did not adapt this particular suggestion, I hope you will find the changes are an improvement over Beta. If not, please feel free to make a new suggestion. Closing this item will give everyone back their votes, to apply against RC.

                            thanks,
                            Doug Turnure – Visual Studio PM

                              Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you have a VS2010 solution that targets Windows XP you can still upgrade to VS11: installing the Windows SDK 7.1 and telling VS11 to use its toolchain will allow your applications to run on XP.
