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.

You can already have multiple projects in a solution, each project in a different language.
Are you asking to mix languages within in one Project?

We are committed to supporting the ability to move projects between collections, however we’ve been unable to make progress on this feature. Unfortunately, the challenges highlighted in earlier posts are still present.
I don’t foresee us making progress on this feature within the next 6 months. We will provide an update once we start planning for the second half of 2019.
