  1. Have the ability to publish to disk, and or FTP, not Azure only

    Currently I have to have Parallels installed with Windows VS 2017 in order to publish .Core on my dedicated server I use to test etc. Most clients do not have Azure and I need to be able to publish to their individual Windows servers...

    • Visual Studio for Mac Missing Offline Installer

      Visual Studio for Mac is missing an offline installer so corporate users cannot use this product. We need to be able to package the product and deploy to company Mac's.

      Every other Microsoft product has an offline installer available for SCCM or JAMF packaging.

            • Please add a designer for ASP.NET

              I've been using Visual Studio (and C#) a *lot* recently, then did some reading on ASP.NET and decided to give it a try, only to find out that *Visual* Studio for Mac is missing a pretty important *visual* designer. Kind of a contradiction, isn't it?

                  • allow deployments on the platform on the Apache httpd server

                    install deployments on the platform on apache server unless there is an IIS on the unix-linux platform
