CodeLens for C++
Make CodeLens available for C++ projects. One cannot deny that C++ is one of the most widely used programming language in the world, and very code intensive software is written in C++, e.g. operating systems or games. Visual Studio should provide CodeLens for C++, so that large groups of developers have a better possibility to review and test code.

CodeLens is only partially supported for C++. It must be supported for source code view. C# has log of auto-generated code, C++ has mostly hand-written code by humans, and hence view within text editor is more demanded for C++.
This feature is needed for C++, now I can see it in my C# projects I miss it in C++.
Yeah, I know Microsofts focus is on C#, but for cross-platform-compatibility I have to use C++, which I enjoy a lot, but isn't the topic here. I would LOVE and by love I mean LOVE codelens to be available in c++. It's just too awesome and useful for staying in flow and not get distracted.

In terms of lines of code we have, using a Goldilocks analogy:
C++ = daddy bear
Fortran = mummy bear
C# = baby bear
New code is written in all three languages so C++ would be (by far) the most beneficial.
