          Update 2/14/2017 – I am happy to announce that we have updated the SlowCheetah extension to work with Visual Studio 2017 and 2015. You can install the extension from the VS marketplace: https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=WillBuikMSFT.SlowCheetah-XMLTransforms

          We are also in the process of adding support for additional project and file types. For the latest development news for the extension, check out the GitHub repo: https://github.com/sayedihashimi/slow-cheetah

          Please let us know if you run into any issues by reporting them at the issue tracker on SlowCheetah’s GitHub page.

          Note: if you installed the preview extension for Visual Studio 2015, please be sure to remove it before installing the new one to avoid conflicts.

          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!

              Work is still ongoing for our plan to enable an Organizations experience for Team Services. We’re expecting this feature to become publicly available sometime in Q1 2017. We’ll be sure to provide updates as we get closer to releasing.

              If you haven’t already, be sure to check out an overview of our overall plan.

                  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.
