Visual Studio 2017 version 15.8

August 14, 2018 by Visual Studio Blog // 0 Comments	

Today we are releasing Visual Studio 2017 version 15.8. In this version we have focused on productivity, performance and bug fixes. There are many new features you‘ll find useful...

So they are focussed on "productivity, performance and bug fixes"
but yet, "There are many new features"

new features a plenty, many of which range from useless to barely useful new features. (also left wondering how many new bugs these introduce.)
nary a note on which bugs were fixed - probably ran out of time packing in so much umm, err ... bloat.

really, since they abandoned the half cooked 2015 the vs team have really taken a huge turn for the worse. for the sake of stability I'm still chugging along on 2013, some new features look OK but not worth the headache (- rather stick to doing those 'new feature' things in a few more lines of code in a version that has less chance of letting me down).

dunno which is the bigger joke now: win 10 or vs 2017 updates and non-fixes.
This internet thing is amazing! Letting people use it: worst idea ever!
