              Thank you all for your continued feedback.

              In response to some recent feedback, we are happy to share that the SlowCheetah extension is officially supported by Microsoft and the Visual Studio team. Part of the reasoning behind moving it under the Microsoft repository on GitHub was to be able to maintain the extension moving forward. We understand many of you would love to see this integrated in the product. This idea is still under consideration and we will share the decision as soon as we can. We thank you for your patience.

              Thanks for the typo catch! We did intend to say the NuGet and VSIX name had been changed to Microsoft.VisualStudio.SlowCheetah.

              Please can a solution also be devised so that linked Class Libraries (e.g. If WebApp 1 and WebAppMVC and ClassLib1 all exist in the same solution), that app.settings in the class library are also carried through to each web application.

              We have a large web solution that is duplicated for different clients. The only difference is the config settings to link to databases/email etc, some of which exist in the class library. Using SlowCheetah, these are currently ignored (read as null) when pulled into the web app's. Therefore currently our settings file have to exist outside the app, and be read on application_start... It seems messy when there's potential to keep this tidy, and all in one IDE!

                  We’ll send you updates on this idea

                  Work is still ongoing for our plan to enable an Organizations experience for Team Services. We will open up a private preview in 2017 H2 for interested customers to sign up to use this feature. I will provide another update when we are close to open up the private preview.

                      Our enterprise platform is built on web forms with VB, simply because at the time of ASP.Net 1 that's pretty much all there was. Now at 4.5, we still use VB and even stored procedures (remember those, kids?), and Entity Framework cannot achieve anything close to the amount of complexity and crunching that goes on with the same level of speed and efficiency. Microsoft should consider the larger-scale impact of enterprise-serving customers before making these decisions. We sure as **** don't have time to rewrite over a million lines of code and 500 procedures just because our approach isn't "****". If kids have got time to rubbish VB and argue about such pathetic things, then they aren't busy enough.
