            We are happy to let you know that in today’s release of Visual Studio 2013 Preview we now show all of your pending changes in a virtualized list if you have a large number of changes. We’ve also removed of the “All Changes” page that was previously used to show a large number of items.

            You can get the VS2013 Preview build here:http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=306566

                Updated Status: 7/2/2013

                Thanks to everyone who voted and commented on this issue. Visual Studio 2013 has increased color and contrast use within the user interface while continuing to focus on giving the content you are creating and editing visual prominence. We’ve utilized the feedback you gave us to help refine our approach to color and contrast within three main areas: 1) we added color to icons and reduced line weights to improve icon scan-ability and to better communicate icon meaning and categorization; 2) we added line work and raised contrast levels to increase visual separation between screen regions; 3) we included a built-in “Blue” theme option at product first launch to better support user choice.

                In keeping with these three areas we have made many changes to the Visual Studio 2013 built-in themes. In high utilization and icon intensive areas of the product, such as common toolbar actions and…

                The most excitement we have had in our office from the new theme are the discussions on what unfortunate circumstances lead to this dull, boring and unimaginative theme. It is a shame that all the great new features (including the return of C++ inteli-sense) are let down by the skin.

                  Thank you everyone for voting and commenting on this issue.
                  We are happy to share that we have made changes to the Menu Bar style in Visual Studio. In Visual Studio “14” CTP2 Menu Bar shows in Title Case and in Visual Studio 2013 Update 3 RC we have added a tools options control for you to pick Title Case styling or All Caps styling for the Menu Bar. Please refer to the following announcements for details –

                  If you are using Visual Studio 2012, you can change the Menu Bar style using this regkey –

                  DWORD: SuppressUppercaseConversion
                  Value: 1

                  Thanks to everyone who voted and commented on this issue. Keeping with a Microsoft-wide emphasis on typography and casing as a key structure-defining element, we are retaining all caps casing as our default within the Visual Studio top level menu…
