  1. Algorithmus zum Ordnen und Sortieren in Echtzeit

    Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

    ich habe einen Algorithmus geschrieben, der große Anzahlen von Einträgen ordnen und sortieren kann. Es wird ein pyramidenförmiges Verzeichnis erstellt, indem die Einträge und Gruppen untereinander verschoben werden. Weitere Informationen finden Sie auf meiner Webseite http://svenbieg.azurewebsites.net/Clusters.

    Ich stelle den Algorithmus in Form von C++-Templates über GitHub bereit: http://github.com/svenbieg/clusters.

    Ich denke der Compiler und IntelliSense könnten davon profitieren und hoffe meine Lösung schafft es in die Standardbibliothek.

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

    Sven Bieg

    • Choose which tab at open

      My PC is pretty slow, so performance is important for me. When I open Visual Studio 2017 I have only 2 tabs open at begining - Solution Explorer and Team Explorer. When I'm starting my work, I have to download new version (from Team Explorer) and then open project and go to Solution Explorer. And whenever I end day on Solution Explorer, next day this tab is open at begining. So it would be cool, if it would be possible to choose which tab open at begining. Thanks.

          • Hi! I have made a small program that deletes the "bin" and "obj" folder in each project. Saves Tons of space. Could be something to use?

            Hi! I have made a small C# program that deletes the "bin" and "obj" folder in each Visual Studio project. Saves Gigs of space. Could be something to use? Useful when making backups.

              • You can improve 'Startup' performance by disabling an extension. Need #secs i can gain so that i can choose to accept perf hit or disable it

                It'll be great if VS tells me by how many seconds i can improve startup performance by disabling an extension. If its by <5s, I would rather keep the slow extension if it provides value. Eg: I get this when using extensions like Ghostdoc

                    • Deploy only files that changed

                      I sometimes need to deploy a mvc mobile app to a server to test it out on a phone or two. The current deployment option upload the complete app each time to a external server. This can take 15 minutes or more. Only a couple of files are updated. The buck of the upload is redundant.

                      • Allow selection of a different node in Source Control Explorer before loading of contents of currently selected node is complete

                        I frequently experience the frustration of accidentally selecting the wrong node in Source Control Explorer (the wrong branch, the wrong folder, etc.), and then having to wait for several seconds whilst the contents of that node is loaded from the VSTS server before I'm then able to select the correct node. I should be able to select a different node before loading of the currently-selected node is complete, but instead the cursor is a loading icon and I just have to wait. I have the same experience when I accidentally right-click the wrong node.

                        • Allow other programs to have more resources while updating Visual Studio

                          Add a selection to slow installer down temporarily so you can use other applications better while you wait so long.

                          • Enforce extension to load asynchronously and run in separate process

                            It is great to have rich extension from community. However, one of the consequence is that extension may not be running in a good performance, or compatible with IDE and other extension, and this lead to bad performance or UI unresponsive of IDE, especially the Editor.

                            I hope there is a way that Visual Studio will:
                            1. Load extension asynchronously
                            2. Run each extension in separate process.

                            In this way, the benefits are:
                            1. Visual Studio IDE will not be impacted by extension
                            2. If one of extension is running unwell, then user can directly kill that extension process, rather…

                                • cgthreads should not be limited to 8

                                  Linking time is by far the slowest part of the build time of my Visual Studio Project. Using -cgthreads8 is twice as fast as -cgthreads4 on my machine. The limitation to eight threads of this option seems utterly artificial. I would like to have the opportunity to test -cgthreads16 and even -cgthreads40 ! Please remove this limitation. Some of us have many cores and would like their linking time below the 1 minute threshold.

                                  • Please optimze the VS updater not to recompute package hash every time

                                    Please optimize the Visual Studio 2017 update process not to recompute the package hashes every time (potentially recomputing 30gb+ needlessly).

                                    You can check a flag file in the package folder for example.

                                      Xamarin live player is very slow,it takes a lot of time just to change single word.You should take inspiration from LiveXaml extension which is faster then Xamarin live player but it is costly. So try to Improve Xamarin live player performance we will be very thankful to you.

                                        • Improved file copy performance over SSH Release Task in VSTS

                                          I realized the performance of file copy over SSH from VSTS build output in "drop" to remote VM (Ubuntu) is much slower compared to when I use "rsync" over my machine. File copy task over SSH in VSTS took me a few minutes but rsync took me less than one minute on the same file.

                                          I would definitely recommend to check out performance improvement for SSH file copy and possibly adopting "rsync" if it is not used in VSTS SSH file copy task.
