We are making more frequent releases that include a balance of updates and enhancements based on our priorities, customer needs, and other influences.
Do you believe we have improved?Chris gave this 1 vote ·
The next version of Visual C++ (v11) will already implement a few new features, the ones highlighted here (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/vcblog/archive/2011/09/12/10209291.aspx).
We’re definitely looking at options to get more features into people’s hands before a complete release cycle (before v12). It would be premature to say anything more specific right now. Hopefully, in the coming months, we’ll have more to say about that.
We will be adding this capability post Dev11 – please refer to the vcblog post for details: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/vcblog/archive/2012/06/15/10320645.aspx
thanks, and thank you for letting us know how important this was to you.
