      We just released a second update of this preview extension, which includes a new Connect to TFS/VSTS flow and numerous fixes for connectivity issues that have been reported. Learn more about how to install the extension here:

      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/mac/tf-version-control

      And if you already have it installed, open the Visual Studio > Extensions… > Updates tab to update to the latest release. Please let us know how well it’s working for you and I’ll keep you all up to date out here as we work toward our first non-preview release.

      Jordan Matthiesen, Program Manager, Visual Studio for Mac

      Unfortunately, we had an issue with the Extensions gallery that blocked some of you from seeing the update. It should be fixed now, sorry about that.

      For anyone working with the preview version of the TFVC extension, please report issues using the Help | Report a Problem menu. Thanks! Jordan

        For anyone who is blocked, there are currently two workarounds for this issue:

        1. If you want to use the Ninja CMake generator, you can manually install the 32-bit version of Ninja to <vs install folder>\Common7\IDE\CommonExtensions\Microsoft\CMake\Ninja

        2. Alternatively, you can edit your CMakeSettings.json file to use the "Visual Studio 15 2017" generator instead of "Ninja". See https://aka.ms/cmake for more info.

                (Update 10/18)
                Hello again,

                I’m Will Buik, a Technical Product Manager on Visual Studio’s IDE team and I am back with an update. We have added an experimental feature to Visual Studio “15” Preview 5 that improves the time it takes to load Solutions. The feature is disabled by default, but you can turn it on through Tools→Options, “Projects and Solutions”→General→“Lightweight Solution load.”

                We would love to hear your feedback about how lightweight Solution load works for you. If you are interested in participating in a quick user study to give us some feedback about the feature please fill out this brief survey: https://aka.ms/w2kt3j. We will reach out to you soon.

                If you are interested in learning more about lightweight Solution load, check out the VS Blog: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/visualstudio/2016/10/11/shorter-solution-load-time-in-visual-studio-15/
                You can download Visual Studio “15” Preview 5 here – https://www.visualstudio.com/visual-studio-pre-release-downloads/

                Thanks everyone, we look forward to your feedback.
                -Will

                Thank you for trying out lightweight solution load - the smarter way to load your solutions. This feature helps developer only load projects that they work on.

                We have addressed your feedback in upcoming Visual Studio 2017 update. You can try out Visual Studio 2017 15.3 preview release, and let us know your feedback You can download preview release from here (this will install side by side with your RTM version) https://www.visualstudio.com/vs/preview/

                If you see any issues, please send us your feedback via "report a problem" tool in Visual Studio 2017.

                  We aren't taking away the in-IDE browser, Zev but we will definitely take your feedback about updating to something like the Edge engine into consideration as we plan our backlog. Thank you for your feedback!

                    Hi, Mark - thanks for the vote! We take accessibility very seriously and we've made some initial steps to use the macOS accessibility platform (see Miguel's mention of it in this blog post: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/visualstudio/2017/04/12/visual-studio-for-mac-to-the-cloud-and-beyond/). We'll keep working to improve our support here.

                      Yes, better team development is the goal. The Model.bim.layout file should not be important for team development, though. The Model.bim file is the one that matters, and in Tabular 1200 projects it is a JSON file, which hopefully makes team development a little easier right now, until a better more fine-grained solution is implemented.

                        Thanks for the feedback! We're renaming this to be specific to Sass and CSS, since it's mentioned explicitly in the vote. If anyone is actually voting for different auto-formatting features, please file those as a new feature vote. Thanks!

                              You can do something very close to what you're asking for in Visual Studio 2017 via the Code Style Configuration system (see Kasey Uhlenhuth's blog post at https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dotnet/2016/12/15/code-style-configuration-in-the-vs2017-rc-update/ that talks about how to set things up) - if you set your preference for the various rules that relate to var (like csharp_style_var_for_built_in_types ) to be false:suggestion, you'll see suggestion dots under code that uses var, and can use a quick action to switch to the strong type.

                              Hope this helps,
                              Mark Wilson-Thomas

                                  Can we please get further clarification on the issue being reported here? Is the problem installing these things on the box itself or is the problem using them later? For example is the problem installing NPM on the box or downloading packages from NPM later on?

                                    There are extensions such as the "End of the Line" extension that does exactly that https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/545e56a7-98d7-47f9-9d84-4681f2903060.
