  3. Compact Visual Studio Community for Unity

    Please, could you make Visual Studio Community 2017 for Unity compact as Codelite ?

    Less hard disc size (Codelite is only 170 MB ) and faster boot and faster compiling.

  4. compare publish

    When you publish a web project, it creates the output in the bin/release folder. When you repeat the process, you should have the option to rename the most recent folder to previous, so a compare between the previous publish and latest publish to see what the difference are.

    Or event use a different release folder naming convention to something like ReleaseYYYYMMDDHHMM.

    I manually do this today, so when I plan to push out a new release, I can just deploy the differences to make it quicker to update the UAT or PROD websites.

    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351688/inherit-the-features-filled-for-a-storysuch-as-app.html
    Inherit the features filled for a story(such as application ,Change point TLP, Release date etc.) to the Linked items tasks/defects/test cases instead of again asking to fill the same.

    Suppose user created a story by giving all fields such as Application Name, Change point details, release details, org details etc. If that story is used to create a new work items such as Defect, Task, Test Cases all those generic fields (Application Name, Change point details, release details, org details etc.) should be…

  6. make a provision for exporting test cases on baisis of folders they are into. For us folders equal to features

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351666/make-a-provision-for-exporting-test-cases-on-baisi.html
    1. Our requirement if for reporting and management.
    We need List of test cases with their feature infor (folder they belong) and properties like tile, ID, Automation status etc.

    2. Export brings all steps etc. which might not be required at times. we need just the titles for report. this makes files too bulky to even load. can we have that option added too (export with titles and explicit properties)

  8. facility to add existing folders inside solution

    There is no feature to insert or add existing folder inside solution or project, we have to create a folder first and then add the existing item.

  11. Ai full use for better code automatic suggestions and smart auto-completion.

    When I start typing "private boo" and hit enter it suggests Boo instead of bool.

    If I type "for" it does not sugget for (int i = 0; i<length; i++)
    and pressing CtrK+S is very dificult

    It can be nice if a good Ai learns and suggest the auto-completion.
    It can be nice if Visual Studio uses more Ai more often using user data.

    ps: And include an English dictionary

  12. VS2017,单文档,新建一个对话框,在对话框上拖一个Edit Control控件, 在Edit Control上右击添加变量怎么都不能添加自定义类型了,添加CString类型,自动变成int型,而且也不与控件自动相关联了,用类向导为IDC_EDIT1添加变量,也没有自动关联。

  13. Add ability to debug async-await code in Unity 2017

    Currently any code with async-await pattern would not show any local variable when hitting the break point. There's only a "this" variable but nothing useful is shown.

  14. Better handling of Unity meta data files

    When deleting and moving items and folders in Visual Studio via the Solution Explorer, VSTU doesn't seem to always deal with the meta files. I often get a meta data file warning when returning to the Unity editor. It would be nice if VSTU could automatically move or delete meta data files as required.
