          • C11 support

            C11 support would allow us to build libraries/apps without MinGW. Right now we are severely crippled by the lack of C standard support on Windows and using MinGW is far from ideal. GCC and clang take the C standard seriously and I think MS should too.

            • Create Python Variable Explorer (like R's Variable Explorer)

              R tools for Visual Studio have been great in VS 2017 - I'd really like to see the addition of a Variable Explorer for Python as well.

              Without it, I tend to use other Python IDEs that ship with a few more features by default (e.g. Spyder)

                  • Add PHP 7.3 support

                    ESPAÑOL
                    VS es el mejor y más flexible IDE que uso para mis proyectos, y sería buena idea para que implementasen soporte para el mejor lenguaje de programación para aplicaciones web. Me gustaría que agreguen soporte para el lenguaje PHP 7.3, de esta manera se puede implementar proyectos web de gran tamaño con soporte para muchas librerías.

                    Soporte Framework PHP7:
                    - Zend
                    - Symfony
                    - Lavarel
                    - Joomla
                    - Etc...

                    Para facilitar su implementación seria bueno que se hagan con el abandonado Aptana, para integrarlo en el próximo Visual Studio

                    ENGLISH

                      • Add a new feature to VS

                        Please please please add compiler for C language in VS. I really want to use many special tools and functions in VS to code in C language, but it doesn't support it. IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO ADD C LANGUAGE COMPILER INTO THE VS

                        • R tools' should be able to autocomplete all variable names in a data frame

                          At present, only the first handful of a data frame's variable names will autocomplete. So 'dataframe$variable1' will be offered as an autocomplete option after entering 'dataframe$', but the same will not be true for 'variable50'.

                          • Only offer auto-complete options after the second or third character of a term has been entered

                            Statistical analyses run in R often make extensive use of single character variables (such as 'x' and 'y'), so the autocomplete can become cumbersome.

                            • open source Visual Foxpro

                              Used Fox technologies since 2.11 in DOS days. It would be great to open up the source to the community as a GitHUB project. I'm sure finding volunteers to contribute to it would be easy.

                              • enable running PyLint upon saving a file

                                Currently, it takes two clicks to run PyLint on a source code file in Visual Studio 2017, while in VS Code any configured linter(s) are automatically run upon saving a file.

                                I'd suggest introducing an option in Visual Studio 2017 for running any configured linters on save (like it was done for TypeScript, for example)

                                    • Add DXC to .hlsl compile options

                                      For now developers have to either use FXC (which means no Shader Model 6.0+ support) or mess around with command line options. It's not convenient and it'd be great to have the option in preferences.

                                      • Python project docker support

                                        It would be great if python projects had Docker support the way ASP.NET core projects do. Here is the documentation for how asp.net projects support Docker. The integration looks seamless.

                                        • Add Python TODO's to Task List

                                          It would be great if "TODO's" from python files in a python project were added to the Task List. Really, it would be nice if this worked across all supported languages for a consistent experience.
